Milwaukee German Fest begins

The Milwaukee German Fest begins today and if you look further on this website you will see a great lineup of entertainers along with links to their websites. Elmar has been busy this week while he and his brother, Ernie, have been driving the German singing stars. Hey, it's a tough job and someone has to do it! Pictured right is Fritz, who plays the Alpenhorn for the Schmalzler, taking a break at our house on a beautiful day. We hope that kind of weather will continue for the next 4 days.

The Schmalzler are scheduled to appear on the Harley stage tonight starting at 5 pm. Those of you who are lucky enough to have been invited to Tom Varney's retirement party tonight will be enjoying the music of this popular Bavarian band tonight.

Hope to see you all at the fest this weekend. Remember today, Thursday, is free admission starting at 5 pm and Usingers is sponsoring $1 brats and hot dogs. Also, tonight and Sunday night there will be fireworks.
