Urban Island Beach Party
Milwaukee is home to Wisconsin’s only urban state park, the often overlooked Lakeshore State Park, located just off of the Summerfest grounds. The Urban Island Beach Party is an annual event hosted by NEWaukee, which benefits the park while showcasing the unique location. This year’s party features music from Soul Low and PANAMA, as well as tropical entertainment such as a pineapple smash, stand-up paddle board demos and a flamingo scavenger hunt which nets lucky searchers a free beer. The Shepherd Express will be there as well, hosting another installment of its popular mobile food fest Street Eats, which will feature food samples from more than 20 local food trucks and carts. Attendees are encouraged to bike to the event; there will be bike valets provided by Wheel and Sprocket and all bikers receive a free beer.
