It is happening in Milwaukee this weekend!

Jump to last reply

The Harley Davidson 105th anniversary party is here in Milwaukee this Labor Day weekend. The atmosphere around town is so energized that I had to mention it in case anyone in the Midwest is looking for something to do this weekend.

On Friday and Saturday the Summerfest grounds will have 4 stages going with performers from all genres. The Foo Fighters will play tonight and Bruce Springsteen tomorrow at Veteran's Park near the lakefront.

Last night was a free concert at Miller Park for the Harley Owners Group. I am not a HOG member but was lent a card by one. Sugarland and Kid Rock were the headliners and played full sets. I have never seen such a sight in my life as every inch of parking area at Miller Park covered with motorcycles. Someone could have really done a major Pee Wee and dominoed the whole thing!(I'm just saying....)

People have come in from all over the world for this weekend's festivities. I drove in to work this morning next to a bike flying an Australian flag! People have been hanging out on the overpasses to wave and "welcome" the Harley's as they ride "home."

I am not a motorcyclist and didn't live here for the 100th anniversary but this is beyond anything I have witnessed and so far seems to be just good clean fun!

Any Fodorites planning to make the trip?
