I love Christmas in South Milwaukee!
Here’s a lineup of some of the bigger events around town, starting this weekend. If I missed something, please let me know.
- Saturday: South Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce annual Heritage Place Tree Lighting. 3:30-5 p.m. at the northwest corner of 10th and Milwaukee Avenues. Visit with Santa and enjoy hot cocoa, cider, and singing from South Milwaukee elementary students. The tree lighting will immediately follow the singing.
- Sunday, Nov. 25: South Milwaukee Christmas Parade and Old Fashioned Christmas. My favorite annual event, the parade starts at 12:30 p.m., followed by all the activities at City Hall, the police department and senior center. The city’s Christmas tree will also be lit around 5 p.m. Learn more in the flyer.
- Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2: Ye Olde Christmas Feaste. Learn more from the flyer, page 1 and page 2, and here.
- Saturday, Dec. 8: South Milwaukee Christmas Market. A new holiday tradition returns bigger and better than ever, this time at South Milwaukee High School. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Learn more at http://www.smmarket.org and in this flyer.
You can learn more about all of these events at City Clerk Jim Shelenske’s events website at http://www.southmilwaukee.org.
And don’t forget about a couple of holiday-themed concerts coming up at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center. There is more information on those in this post.
