VA Beats & Eats looks to build on success

A good measuring stick for any first-time festival is when the next one is being planned before the initial event is over.

The first VA Beats & Eats, which featured a 5K Run-Walk-Roll, live bands, car show, food trucks, Veteran art show, lawn games, historical tours, and info booths on VA health care, drew an estimated 750 people to the Milwaukee VA Medical Center grounds on Saturday, July 14.

“Today turned out to be a successful event,” said Dr. Christina Orr, assistant medical center director. “We were very proud of the turnout that we had, especially for it being our first year of VA Beats & Eats. We’re looking forward to having it again next year, bigger and better.” Read more.
