Starting at 5pm, a free trolley will run loops through the Village visiting shops, restaurants and parking areas. Ride the whole loop, or hop on and off wherever you like.

The tree lighting ceremony begins at 5:45pm and will feature musical performances, a local chorus and even Santa himself arriving on a fire truck courtesy of the Wauwatosa Fire Department.

The program will end around 6:30pm and Santa will move to Paulina
Esthetics Boutique (7601 Harwood Ave) where he will visit with children.
The trolley will continue to run after the ceremony, and will take visitors to spots throughout the Village that will feature hot cocoa, kids crafts and other activities.

Sponsored once again by our friends at Waterstone Bank!

I really appreciate all the hard work that went into making yesterday’s event special, but I am wondering if in the future it might be possible to have a better description of the itinerary for those of us bringing our kids out in the cold for this family-oriented event. Saying that the tree lighting ceremony begins at 5:45 and that things wrap up around 6:30 leaves a lot of room for interpretation for those of us who wanted to be sure our kids didn’t miss Santa or the tree lighting. Instead, we stood around unable to see or even hear anything because the public address audio system couldn’t be heard anywhere but close to the front. State Street having traffic made things concerning from a safety standpoint once the crowd size grew. By the time the tree actually was lit at 6:20, we were tired, cold, and wishing we had better information to guide our enjoyment of the activity. Again, we really appreciate everything but had just hoped for better information.

Please shut down State Street next time! There were so many close calls with small children so close to the busy street!

Yes I agree State street needs to be shut down for events like that. With the new design of the area (which I love the look) and no curbs it makes it very easy for small children to dart into the road

I totally agree. I appreciate all the effort. But the sounds system was poor and had major feedback. It was poorly planned and seemed to be all setup last minute. More effort in sound and lighting. I am willing to help plan that part next year.

Can you give the exact location of the tree lighting? It didn't look like it was going to be held in the usual spot because of the construction. Several people have been asking about it. Thank you!

I swiped this from another post: There will be a temporary tree this year at the South end of the pedestrian bridge over the river. Close to the Little Red Store.

Because of all the construction can some one tell me exactly where the tree will be?

I was wondering the same things and if the tree lighting was even happening with the construction still going on???
