We hate to admit it, but summer is almost over.
But we refuse to let it go.
With this in mind, we checked in with our friends from the Sports Media Institute, a Milwaukee-based nonprofit mentoring and sports media training program, to ask them some of their favorite things to do in Milwaukee in the summer.

Pick: Brady Street Festival

Pick: Mexican Fiesta
In their own words: In the summer I enjoy going to Mexican Fiesta. I really like the jewelry that people sell there. The food that they have is really good especially, the corn on the cob. Last year, I got a poncho that is really warm, I wear it in the winter a lot because it keeps me warm from the cold Milwaukee weather.
