Children's Fest Day aims to make Summerfest more accessible to all of Milwaukee

Everyone who came to Summerfest between 12-3 p.m. Thursday got in for free. That’s because it was Children’s Fest Day.  

Besides free admission, there are discounts on food and drinks, and tons of stuff for kids/families to do.

Arguably the best part of this hot day for most kids was playing in the water at the Summerfest splash pad. 

 “It’s just amazing to see them be kids and have fun,” said Kyanna McGee. “Kids don’t care if they get their clothes or shoes wet. They are just loving life.”

McGee is one of the leaders at Joyful Noise Child Care. She helped bring the kids enrolled in the daycare program on a field trip to Children’s Fest. For many of the kids, it’s their first time ever experiencing Summerfest. 

“A lot of kids in Milwaukee can’t afford to go to Summerfest,” she said. “Some families don’t have the means to get all the way down here to Summerfest. It’s nice to be able to give them a taste of it.”

Making Summerfest more accessible to everyone in Milwaukee is one of the goals of Children’s Fest Day.
