Light it up! Scenes From a Fun Start to the the South Milwaukee Holiday Season

What a parade! What a market!

I couldn’t be more excited about the South Milwaukee Christmas events the last two Saturdays. From Old Fashioned Christmas to our city tree lighting to our first-ever South Milwaukee Lions Lighted Christmas Parade to the South Milwaukee Christmas Market, it has been a terrific start to the holiday season in South Milwaukee.

This week, it’s Christmas show at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center, the Festival of Trees, a reindeer visit and more. 

Here is the full schedule. 

I’d like to thank everyone involved the past two weekends, and that list is long.

I start with our city workers, led by our Street and Police Departments and Clerk’s Office. The Nov. 24 events could not happen without their support and hard work.

And thank you to all of the volunteers as well! 

  • Old Fashioned Christmas: Thanks first to the committee: Adeline Becker, Byron Borck, Joyce Bulley, Bernice Czarnezki, Rose Flores, Beverly Garves, Dolores Page, Sharon Paprocki, Debbie Polzin, Jim Shelenske, Karen Skowronski (and daughter Jenna), Sandy Skrobiszewski and Janet Talaska. Also, volunteers from South Shore Masonic Lodge #3, the South Milwaukee Middle School Volunteens and students from the WI-951 Greenfield High School Air Force JROTC Program also stepped up to help, among others. 
  • South Milwaukee Lions parade support: Thank you to Jim Shelenske; Al Bassett; George Becker; Dick Blaha; Luis Castillo and his son Frankie; Jackie Ove and husband Rick; Tim Talaska; Chelsea Weirich;  Patti Redlin, husband Larry and two grandkids; Debbie Polzin and two grandkids; and Leo Cameron. 
  • And to the South Milwaukee Downtown Market Committee and South Milwaukee High School, congratulations on another wonderful indoor market. What a festive annual event. 

And congratulations to our parade float winners, as judged by our super secret judges we have placed along the route … their photos are in this post.
