Mitchell Park Domes
The desert dome is getting decked out for Dia de los Muertos for the first time this year. Candles, orange marigolds, and other decorations will be up, along with a mariachi band, kids' activities, and Mexican food and beverages.
UW-Milwaukee Union Cinema
The day the Milwaukee Film Festival ends is when the LGBT Film Festival begins. Run by the UWM Peck School of the Arts film department, expect to see feature films, documentaries, visiting artists, and talks about LGBT portrayals in film and media.
You know the drill: marching bands, local news "celebrities," and most importantly, over a thousand veterans in various groups march in this parade. It always ends at the War Memorial, where special displays and services are being held as well.
Crown Plaza Hotel and Convention Center
This may be the only event that brings together comic book artists, memorabilia dealers, and the entire cast of Land of the Lost in one place. Get autographs, photos, and sketches from TV and pop culture celebrities.
Check out the host of The Daily Show on his stand-up tour; while you won't be seeing a taping of the show, you'll probably still get plenty of political humor and making fun of President Trump, which is a pretty good consolation prize.
State Fair Park
The Expo Center is filled to the brim with cultural exhibitions, including a traditional dance and music theater, international foods, heritage booths, and, perhaps the most important with the holidays coming up, the bazaar.
