When the lights go on, the fun begins. It’s the holiday season in Metro Milwaukee. The annual Holiday Lights Festival again turns downtown streets and parks into a winter wonderland that can be enjoyed on foot, by car or on 40-minute Jingle Bell tours. You’ll find visitors and locals also celebrating the season at events like the Christmas in the Historic Third Ward and Festive Friday Eves in historic Cedarburg.

Relax and enjoy NBA action, featuring the young and surprisingly successful Milwaukee Bucks, take in the many holiday concerts or skate on the Slice of Ice at Red Arrow Park in the heart of Milwaukee’s downtown. Be sure to check our special events and arts and entertainment listings for all the possibilities and don’t forget Milwaukee’s great holiday brunches.

All of us at KEY Milwaukee wish you an enjoyable holiday season and all the best for 2015.
