‘We are disappointed:’ Final NEWaukee Night Market cut short due to weather
MILWAUKEE — The final NEWaukee Night Market of the season was cut short due to the weather Wednesday, Sept. 11.

NEWaukee Night Market officials issued this statement:
“We are disappointed to cut tonight’s final Night Market of the summer short due to dangerous weather. Stay safe tonight! Please know that it is not a decision we take lightly, as we understand how much work our vendors and sponsors do to prepare.
The safety of our vendors, staff and attendees is most important to us. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes for anyone traveling from near and far to participate.
