While we haven’t had the ideal fall weather here in Milwaukee, it’s still that time of year and the season is going to change with or without the cold breeze. We all love the 60-degree weather, long sleeve shirts, and hot coffee to keep up warm, but instead we have 85 and sunny. There are still so many ways to enjoy the start of Autumn, Halloween, and pumpkin spice everything. Check out these fall events happening around Milwaukee, and in neighboring cities!
