This is a sponsored post.
Many thanks to Milwaukee Irish Fest presented by CelticMKE, for sponsoring this giveaway to provide two lucky Lake Country Family Fun readers a free family 4-pack of tickets to Irish Fest this August.
Milwaukee Irish Fest is coming to the Henry W. Maier Festival Park on the Lake Michigan lakefront August 16th through 19th, 2018.
What is Irish Fest?
Milwaukee Irish Fest is the world’s largest celebration of Celtic music and culture. The four-day festival showcases more than 100 entertainment acts on 17 stages at Henry W. Maier Festival Park on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Mark your calendars for the 38th annual Milwaukee Irish Fest taking place on August 16th through 19th, 2018.
What family friendly activities do they have?
There are so many family friendly activities going on at Irish Fest! First of all, did you know they have parades during the festival? Yes! Starting Saturday at 4:30 pm and Sunday at 4:00 pm., your family can watch a parade that begins at the north end of the festival grounds. There will be bagpipe and drum units, pirates, vikings, and more to see and hear!
Be sure to grab a family passport as well, which is like a scavenger hunt. You can find the passport at the information desk or various other stops throughout the grounds. Fill your passport with stamps as you and your family make your way through the event, creating crafts, and collecting prizes. Then check out Leprachaun Village, the Children’s Area, and Greenwish Village for even more family fun, such as searching for gold, Lili-Putt mini golf, and Leprechaun Launch.
We walked through the gate, and the kiddos immediately wanted to go on the sky glider. What a view! We were able to watch dancers do their Irish jig, watch the crowds grow, and plan out our must see spots. Next stop was our family passport, dinner, watching the parade, and the Children's Cultural Area and Playground. Our final attraction was the Fitzgeralds (and more food). Amazing! Many thanks to @celticmke and @mkeirishfest for the fun night!! #77summerlcff #lakecountryfamilyfun #lakemichigan #mkeirishfest #irishjig #summertoremember
