Milwaukee isn't the city of festivals for nothing. If you can't find any festivals this weekend then you're probably not trying hard enough.

Kicking off Friday is German Fest at Henry Maier Festival Park. This is definitely a festival you want to make it to. This year, top lumberjack athletes will be competing in the 2018 Men's and Women's Collegiate U.S. Championships.

The festival also has nightly fireworks. It's here all weekend until 9 p.m. on Sunday.

On Saturday, it's all about beer. Milwaukee Brewfest is at McKinley Park from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. Over 100 different breweries will be at the festival.

Also on Saturday is Brady Street Festival. Starting at 11 a.m. Brady Street will be bumping with local music and live entertainment like belly dancers and a drag show. The party doesn't stop until midnight.

One of the more unique Milwaukee events is Riverwest 24. The 24-hour bike race starts Friday at 7 p.m. and ends Saturday at 7 p.m. But this isn't just a bike ride. There are multiple stops along the way including one where riders get a real tattoo!

Lastly, it's another good weekend for country music lovers. Country Jam at the Beach is at Bradford Beach on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
