Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival Sets the City Aglow

10 December 2021

There’s no better time to get in the holiday spirit than now! Head to the Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival, running now through New Year’s Day, to spark joy and get ready for the holidays. This unique local celebration takes over a delightful route that winds through Cathedral Square, Seidler Union Square, and Pere Marquette Park, along with the surrounding streets. You can wander the displays on foot or drive through! To get the full experience you have to download the iHeartRadio app to listen to the self-guided Jingle Bus audio tour that will explain what you’re seeing on display! 

Part of the festival is the attractions and sights along the way, as well as the events that will run throughout the season. Check out their guide to get the full scoop! Plus, if you have little ones in your group, have them write a letter to Santa and stick it in Santa’s Mailbox! Even better, if you do that before the 12th of December and leave a return address, your little one’s holiday season will be made brighter with a personal response from the big guy himself.
