Streetza Pizza Promotion

Sunday will likely be a long day for many Great Circus Parade attendees.  There will probably be many official parade route vendors selling food and drink, but one worth checking out is Streetza Pizza.  We follow Streetza Pizza on Twitter and asked them if they were planning to sell their pizza at The Great Circus Parade.  Streetza informed us that they will be located on the corner of Broadway and Wisconsin Avenue from 10am to 4pm.  Streetza has also offered readers of Milwaukee Consumer a free soda or water with the purchase of any slice.  Just tell them that you read about them on Milwaukee Consumer!  Streetza will also be handing out free frozen Flavor Ices, while supplies last.  Check out Streetza’s story at

Parade Tips

According to this WISN article, although parade spectators can start setting up after 6pm on Friday, the City of Milwaukee is recommending parade spectators arrive early on Sunday morning to claim their spot.  WISN wisely points out that spectators might want to consider setting up their spots near buildings that will have an open bathroom since there won’t be any Port-o-Potties along the parade route.

As of Friday morning, the weather forecast for the parade looks beautiful.  A high of 82 degrees, partly cloudy skies, and only a 10% chance for precipitation.
