This 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 the Gift of Wings.

A professional ice carving group called The QUuiet Ice Carvers will also be on hand, carving some great designs.
