We certainly love a good festival! And coming up next week, West Bend, Wisconsin's Regner Park is home to two great festivals.
German Night is a celebration of German food and culture will be coming to Regner Park on Wednesday, July 13. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and features music by the River City Blaskapelle starting at 5:30 and Until Dawn from 7:30-10:30.
Then, just a few days later, Regner Fest takes place at, you guessed it, Regner Park. Friday night, July 15, the fun starts at 4 p.m. with music from Bella Cain at 7:30. Saturday, June 16, there are a ton of fun activities for the kids following the Dirty Ninja Mud Run and then music from Buckshot from noon-4 p.m.
Both German Night and Regner Fest are put on by West Bend Friends of Parks & Recreation, an organization that helps supplement West Bend's Parks & Rec department in order to make our West Bend parks beautiful above and beyond what's possible on a municipal budget.
Lori Yahr from Friends of West Bend Parks & Rec joins me on this episode to talk about German Night, Regner Fest, and some of the other great things the organization does for our area parks.
