Shooting stars will be flying early in the morning in the Fox Point and Bayside area. The Orionids meteor shower promises to be a show worth watching.
The offspring of Halley's Comet are about to put on quite a show in the skies of Fox Point and Bayside.

Doctors Park was busy Tuesday as many residents made their way down to take a dip in the chilled Lake Michigan waters.
While one girl lay buried up to her neck in sand, a little boy darted in and out of the water as it lapped up onto the beach.
