So many people work so hard to create so many special special events in South Milwaukee. That’s especially true during Christmas.
But that’s in a normal year.
With the pandemic deepening in our city, we have cancelled the City Hall tree lighting event, and the Lighted Christmas Parade is also callled off, aligning with crowd size guidelines. (We are looking at virtual options for the lighting.) The South Milwaukee Christmas Market is among the other events called off for 2020.
Here is what is still on …
- Drive-Through Santa. The Old Fashioned Christmas Committee has created a unique, safe, and socially distanced opportunity on Saturday, Nov. 21, at two locations: City Hall and Blakewood Elementary. Check out the graphic for more information, and thank you to everyone on the committee for their creativity and hard work, as well as sponsors Eaton Corp. and the South Milwaukee Lions.
- Festival of Trees. Caterpillar, Ace Hardware and the City of South Milwaukee are again teaming up to bring some holiday magic to the public space at 11th and Madison Avenues. Make your plans now to deocrate a tree, individually or as a team, group, organization, etc. Trees, donated by Ace, arrive at the site on Nov. 24 and will remain on display through Christmas, weather permitting. More details to come.
- Light Up South Milwaukee Awards. The Beautification Committee will again be honoring the “best of the best” deocrated homes and businesses. Nominations will open soon, and voting will be done via Facebook. Start planning your award-winning displays now!
