Wisconsin Summer Fun Report: 7/21/11 – 7/27/11

It’s time once again for a preview of the weekend, courtesy of Travel Wisconsin’s Summer Fun Report!

Celebrate America’s largest Italian cultural event – Festa Italiana! Held on the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee, enjoy nine stages of international and local entertainment including the Monkees Reunion Tour, a 32 person chorus from Naples, Italy and Fran Cosmo, the former lead singer of Boston. Did we mention nightly fireworks?! How about the mouth-watering Italian eats? New this year, see the MSOE LEGO Leaning Tower of Pisa – a 5 foot tall replica made entirely of LEGOS.

Here’s an event for all the foodies out there, the Iron River Lion’s Blueberry Festival! Celebrate, you guessed it, all things blueberry! We’re talking a blueberry pancake breakfast, blueberry pies, a pie eating contest, and yes, plenty of juicy, delicious blueberries for sale. You’ll also see a kid’s tractor pull, Sunday Polka Mass, Cardboard Boat Race and live music. Of course, no event is complete without a parade and raffle!
