Get ready for the Holiday Parade
The 87th annual Holiday Parade in Downtown Milwaukee will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
The parade features approximately 100 units, including 15 award-winning bands, numerous local TV and radio personalities, 40-foot helium balloons, live animal entourages, costumed characters, specialty vehicles and of course, Santa Claus himself.
Live coverage of the parade will air locally on WITI-TV beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Starting at the corner of Kilbourn Avenue and Astor Street, the parade continues west to Old World 3rd Street where it turns left and continues south to Wisconsin Avenue. The parade officially ends in front of The Shops of Grand Avenue on the corner of Old World 3rd Street and Wisconsin Avenue.
Non-perishable food items will be collected along the route to benefit the Hunger Task Force's Food For Families.
The kick off of the Downtown Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival is two days earlier, Nov. 21, at 6 p.m. at Pere Marquette Park.
OnMilwaukee.com remains a proud sponsor of the Downtown Milwaukee Holiday Parade, a cherished Milwaukee holiday tradition since 1927.
