Riveredge Nature Center offers maple sugaring events throughout early spring.
March marks the beginning of the end of winter in Milwaukee, and we’re here for it. It’s the start of maple sugaring season, St. Patrick’s Day, AND the museums are re-opening.
GO BIG FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY
The Milwaukee St. Patricks Day Parade has been postponed until September 25, 2021 (It will be the “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Parade”). But, you can still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Celtic MKE’s At-Home Celebration. They’re providing a full day’s worth of programming, ranging from family entertainment to cultural shows and performances from emerging artists in Ireland. Click here to find out more.
