Looking for Fun after the Fireworks, BMO Harris Bank Encourages Canadians to Go 
South of the Border to Milwaukee 
With Summerfest in full swing and plenty more to see, now is the time
to visit 
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/13 -- If you are
looking for a new adventurous vacation spot this year, BMO Harris
Bank encourages you to consider a fun destination just south of the
border -- Milwaukee. As the world's largest music festival,
Summerfest will be headlining through the weekend, but there is a lot
more to see and do throughout the summer. 
Just around the corner, the streets of Milwaukee will be transformed
into one of the nation's largest French-themed festivals during
Bastille Days July 11 - 14. Known for its impromptu street
performers, interactive and musical entertainment, and its signature
43-foot Eiffel Tower replica with hourly light shows, the festival
takes place downtown Milwaukee and is kicked off by the annual BMO
Harris Bank Storm the Bastille Run on July 11. 
Don't miss the Wisconsin State Fair taking place August 1 - 11,
featuring competitions, exhibits and musical entertainment from
chart-topping performers such as Miranda Lambert, Yes, Gary Allen,
Heart and many others. 
Only 600 kilometers from Windsor or a quick flight from Toronto,
Milwaukee offers something for visitors of all ages, from great
restaurants and the beautiful and relaxing Riverwalk, to the
Harley-Davidson Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Milwaukee
County Zoo, and the Milwaukee Art Museum, where works by Miro,
Picasso and Warhol grace the walls.  
"The summer season really allows Milwaukee to come alive with
festivals, music and great outdoor events that showcase our city's
adored traditions and landmarks," said Brad Chapin, Executive Vice
President, BMO Harris Bank. "Whether you're on a family vacation or
just passing through the city on your own, Milwaukee has something
for everyone and we encourage our Canadian neighbors to come
experience the excitement and energy that surrounds our great city
each summer."  
"Along with all the fun summer events and festivals, Milwaukee is
rated as one of the top value destinations in the U.S., where
top-rated hotels meet James Beard-nominated chefs and restaurants,
all in an easy, walkable city," said Paul Upchurch, President and
CEO, VISIT Milwaukee. "A blend of the old and the new, Milwaukee's
European heritage is reflected in our cherished architecture and
unique neighborhoods, while we look to the future with attractions
like the lakefront Milwaukee Art Museum and Discovery World." 
There's plenty more to see and do. If you're looking to enjoy a
national pastime, then a trip to see a Milwaukee Brewers game is a
must. Also known as "Brew City," Milwaukee is home to some of the
nation's top-rated breweries where you can enjoy a couple fresh
pints. And don't forget, musical acts perform throughout the year at
the BMO Harris Bradley Center and throughout the summer at the BMO
Harris Pavilion.
