    The Giant Bear Kite taking a nap.

This 27 year Milwaukee tradition is free to the public and will start at 11am just prior to the Polar Bear’s jump into Lake Michigan, and will run until we can no longer stand the cold, probably around 5pm. Kites and hot food are available for purchase or bring your own. FREE Hot chocolate, coffee, and snacks will be served while it lasts, compliments of Caribou Coffee. A group of local Milwaukee Ice carvers, The Quiet Ice Carvers, will also be on hand, carving some great designs. Horse drawn carriage rides will also be available from Milwaukee Coach and Carriage.
