Arab World Fest brings culture and cuisine to Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee's festival season continues this weekend with Arab World Fest.

The annual celebration is back at Maier Festival Park after a three year hiatus due to conflict with Ramadan. 

Guests are sure to have fun and learn more about Arab culture through belly dancing, music, movies and food.

Hours are 5 p.m. to midnight Friday, noon to midnight Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday. There's a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. Saturday and camel rides everyday for $5. 

Tickets are $10 at the gate, but there are free admission specials for each day of the event. Check out the Arab World Festival website for more information. 

CBS 58's Marshanna Hester has a sneak peek from the festival grounds.
