June 23, 2011

With a giant inflatable version of UW–Madison’s modern-day mascot, Bucky Badger, looming in the background, the 1st Brigade Band performs Civil War-era music during the Wisconsin Alumni Association’s 150th birthday party on Alumni Pier on June 23, 2011.

Unseasonably cool, drizzly weather did little to deter the more than 2,000 partygoers who stopped by to enjoy a scoop of Mad Grad Medley, WAA’s 150th anniversary commemorative ice cream flavor produced by the Babcock Dairy.
