Besides the ten days of the Summer the Henry Maier Festival Park is taken over with drunks, better known as Summerfest. The grounds play host to a number of wonderful festivals. Here is the schedule for the festival grounds in 2008. I would highly recommend attending any of them as the food and people watching is always enjoyable.

In between these dates, you will find me at Miller Park watching my Milwaukee Brewers kick some MLB butt! Brewers tickets are a little pricier than the festivals at Summerfest, but with the promotions both have, you can usually find a good deal around. It's the darn beer that gets out of hand. The price you pay for a good time. Ahhhh, the regret.
