Snuggle up with some holiday cheer as OnMilwaukee shares stories of everything merry and bright in the spirit of the season.

Turner Hall's alley, 1029 N. Old World 3rd St., will soon be transformed into Santa Claus Lane called "Santa Camp Pop's Up" on Friday, Dec. 17 and Saturday, Dec. 18 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The holiday pop-up event features a special holiday lights festival-themed ice bar by Art Below Zero, festive drinks from Deer Camp, and warm beverages and stocking stuffers from Pop’s Kettle Corn and Pop’s MarketPlace (which explains the normally unnecessary apostrophe in the name of the event.)

The fun will also include Christmas flicks projected on the bricks of Deer Camp, a live DJ spinning holiday tunes, photo ops and more.

This alley activation is supported in part by AARP Wisconsin’s “Small Dollar, Big Impact” grant program, which has enabled communities around the state to activate underutilized spaces into vibrant public spaces, especially during the winter.
