Milwaukee Irish Fest

It never ceases to amaze me how the festival grounds can be completely transformed in four days to accommodate a different ethnicity and its foods and culture. Last weekend's Arab World Festival gave way to this weekend's Irish Fest. Hookahs disappeared and were replaced by beer as the substance of choice.
So much green!

So many bagpipes! They are much more fun in the open air, as a big parade.

Irish dancing routine to "Eye of the Tiger." Who would have thought?

This is probably the single least-appetizing food I have ever encountered, but it's cultural. (Sponge pudding?)
