This Milwaukee tradition will take place in Veterans Park, on Milwaukee’s usually warm and windy lakefront.  The kite festival is free to the public and will start at 11:00 am just prior to  the Polar Bear’s jump into Lake Michigan, and will run until we can no longer stand the cold, probably around 5:00 PM.  Kites and hot food are available for purchase or bring your own.  FREE Hot chocolate, coffee, and pre-bagged snacks will be served while it lasts, compliments of  Gift of Wings.  We are under strict Covid-19 rules, so please keep your distance from others, and wear your mask.  

A professional ice carving group called THE QUIET ICE CARVERS will also be on hand, carving some great designs.
