    The best thing to pair with a little dog such as myself is a little kid.  They love to play, get messy, and eat foods that stick to their face, and so do I.  That’s why I’m excited that German Fest is featuring a lineup of kid-friendly attractions and activities for the 2008 Fest.  Here’s a run-down of the kiddie-fun that has my tail wagging:

    All Weekend Long: German Fest’s Cultural Village is hosting the “Children’s Passport Activity”.  It’s a really cheap ticket to international fun, free in fact, that will entertain the kids while they learn something.   To participate, kids can pick up a free “passport” at any of the information booths in the Cultural Village.  From there, they can roam to different displays about German Americans, learn a new fact, and receive a unique stamp for each display they visit.  Kids who fill their entire passport will receive a prize. 

The hours for the passport program are:

Thursday, July 24 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Friday, July 25 from 3 to 7 p.m.

Saturday, July 26 from 3 to 7 p.m.

Sunday, July 27 from 1 to 7 p.m. 

    Thursday, July 24:  Kids can explore the German Fest grounds to paint their own souvenir t-shirts, create crafts in Pretzel park, or ride the sky glider.  Also, both a yodeling contest and an alphorn contest will showcase kids’ talent.  Talk about live entertainment….”Yodelehee-hoo!”

    Saturday, July 26:  The kids can come watch me race!  It will be an exciting afternoon beginning with the Doxie costume contest at 1 p.m. and the Wiener Dog Races at 3 p.m.  I’d love to see a crowd there, and kids are so cute, so bring them on over.

    Sunday, July 27: Kids can take part in a special parade in Pretzel Park at 3 p.m.

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
