Milwaukee City Hall gets ready for Milwaukee Day with giant flag
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A giant 414 flag is now hanging at Milwaukee's City Hall serving as a reminder that Milwaukee Day is coming up on Sunday, April 14.
The flag is 20 feet wide and 36 feet long and was unfurled Tuesday morning.
Mayor Barrett says people should celebrate 4/14 by doing "anything Milwaukee."
"Enjoy our parks, enjoy our rivers, enjoy our lakes, enjoy each other," Mayor Tom Barrett said.
"We want everybody to come down, use the hashtag #414flag on all their socials. And, you know, enjoy the city of Milwaukee this Sunday because we live in perhaps the coolest city in the Midwest, if not the U.S.," 414 flag designer Fred Gillich said.
