MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It’s the first real weekend that feels like Spring.

People were definitely outside, but the warmer weather doesn’t mean life is back to normal.

Social distancing rules are still very much in effect, but people are finding unique ways to get together.

“We kind of just, like, meet up like every week or so," Wauwatosa resident Maddie Bartz said.

For Bartz and her friends, meeting up means chatting from their trunks.

“I feel like this is one of the only ways that we can see each other, cause I’m going to respect the social distancing that we’re given," she added.

CBS 58 caught the Traxel’s in their front lawn.

“It’s perfect weather and because of the rain, recently, the ground is soft and you can work it," West Allis resident Thomas Traxel said.

Some garden centers are benefiting from the nicer weather.

Classes were canceled at Wisconsin Garden and Pet Supplies, but customers are still coming in.

“They’ve been working in their yard now more than they ever have and they’re getting to some of those projects so they’re excited to plant," said Ange Niestuchowski-Rowden, manager at Wisconsin Garden and Pet Supplies.

In Wauwatosa, the excitement has been postponed.

What would’ve been the 20th annual Tosa Tonight Summer Concert Series was canceled over Coronavirus concerns.

“It’s not an easy decision. It did not come lightly for anyone but we still stand by what we feel is the right decision," said Rick Bauer, Tosa Tonight, Inc. executive director.

Bauer said the cancellation isn’t hurting organizers as much as their sponsors.

They’re urging fans to find those local businesses on the concert series website and support local.

They will also keep fans updated on Tosa Tonight developments.
