Holiday Fun in Milwaukee


At Krause, our team members love celebrating the holiday season with family and friends across Milwaukee. It’s a wonderful time to take part in festive events and activities across town. Here are some great ways to share in this year’s holiday fun in Milwaukee:


Visit Catalano Square

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a tree lighting ceremony! Each year, Milwaukee’s Catalano Square lights up with colorful holiday lights. This ceremony happened earlier this month, but there’s still time to “shop the Ward,” visiting the many neighborhood retailers that makes this area so special. Learn more here.


Wild Lights

For the second year, the Milwaukee Zoo will transform into an illuminated destination featuring millions of lights throughout the forests and pathways. Walk the 1-mile path glowing with animal-themed light displays and enjoy shimmering displays along the way. Details here.


Santa’s Mailbox

Drop off your child’s letters to Santa in Santa’s Mailbox in Cathedral Square Park. There’s no need for postage, but don’t forget to include a return address, so Santa’s elves can send a reply from St. Nick in the North Pole! Stop by the mailbox any time till December 12.


Holiday Lights Festival

With sparkling interactive displays at Pere Marquette Park, Zeidler Union Square and Cathedral Square, now’s the time for the whole family to enjoy the winter wonderful. Learn more about this here.


No matter how you choose to celebrate the holiday season, we want all our neighbors in New Berlin, Brookfield, and throughout Milwaukee County to enjoy Milwaukee’s special holiday celebrations with their loved ones.
