I enjoyed Darry's latest on the Downtown Waukesha situation. Freeman Friday Night Live continues to be the best thing to bring people downtown since Weekend in Waukesha a few years back. The difference, I've noticed, is FFNL attracts mostly people from the local area who would most benefit from a thriving downtown. While Harley's Weekend in Waukesha was great fun, temporarily good for the economy and a great way to get word out about our fair city, my guess is the majority of our guests may not return until another Harley event, if then.
Last Friday I was situated at the bottleneck between the Potter's Shop demonstration booth and the Steaming Cup stage where the Front Porch Boys were entertaining. There were so many strollers; couples, singles and the four-wheeled kind, that foot traffic often would have to wait their turn to pass. Figured if I stood there long enough eventually most FFNL goers would eventually walk past. The weather was great, but people watching was even better.
A Freeman Sound Off says it best about FFNL. Do you want the downtown to be a success, or do you want the downtown we had in the 80's?
