Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Welcome Back Summerfest

  • Print
There's really nothing better than people-watching at Summerfest. I enjoy the sea of humanity. Mike Jacobs and I were live there for the 4,5,6 p.m. shows. The weather was perfect for the first night of the world's largest music festival. People seemed so happy. They were having a great time dancing, singing, hanging out, and really showing the true Milwaukee spirit. I have to confess, as Mike and I headed back to get ready for the 10 p.m. news, I really wanted to turn around and go see Stevie Wonder. But such is life, when you work nights. Still, something about being outside with thousands of joyful people is good for the spirit. Maybe it's our long winter, the high gas prices, the economy, but I can't help but believe everyone needs some respite. Summerfest brings us together, and makes thousands of people feel good. It's great that the Big Gig is here to remind us all that despite life's daily challenges, we cannot forget to have a little fun.
