TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) - The first-ever Music on Milwaukee Street is going on Saturday in downtown Tomah Wisconsin near the Western Technical College campus.
Organizers said a lot of work has been put into developing the city's downtown area, and they hope the event will draw people to it. The event is the result of four years of planning by city officials.
"It takes a lot of time and planning and certainly a lot of money, so tonight is going to be the culmination of all of that planning and thinking and just dreaming to get to this point" said Tina Thompson, president and CEO of Tomah’s chamber of commerce.
Duncan Peterson, Greg Hall and the Wrecking Band, and The Tim Sigler Band are bringing the music. The music will go until 11:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15.
City officials said ticket sales will help offset the cost of the event this year, but they hope to attract more sponsors in the future
