The BMO Harris Bradley Center saw more than 55,000 fans over a three day period for NCAA basketball games. Mix that with St. Patrick's Day celebrations and Mader's Valet Attendant Brian Schewe said it was one of his busiest weekends.
"I mean there were so many people once it started around 4:00, 4:15, people in bunches of 50 at a time were walking down the sidewalk," said Schewe.
Visit Milwaukee says it plans to spend the next several days calculating the exact economic impact from this weekend and expects to have updated numbers next week.
"Any chance we could get to get people to come into Milwaukee is great," said Cooke. "To get them to have a good experience and come on back."
