Carnival Milwaukee a huge success! Once again, about 225 people joined UEDA on the last Saturday in February for our annual fundraiser, which featured 26 local food vendors and live entertainment by De La Buena. One of our guests wrote a column in The Capital Times that captures the purpose and what we at UEDA had hoped people would experience at Carnival - Link to the article here: Carnival shows Milwaukee’s gathering steam
