Jubilee presented by WaterStone Bank!
Saturday, October 29 from 10am-2pm at Red Arrow Park
The event will take place on Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Red Arrow Park. Coordinated by Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, this new Halloween-themed event features free giveaways, activities and fun for all ages, (especially children ages 2 – 8)!
Free Pumpkin for first 500 Attendees
The first 500 attendees will have the opportunity to pick out a free pumpkin from downtown Milwaukee’s only pumpkin patch. At noon, a kids costume parade, led by popular animated movie characters, will loop around Red Arrow Park. Families can also gather for story time with Wanda the Witch, a Halloween-themed character from The Pocket Lady, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Wes Tank’s StoryRaps (12:30 – 1 PM) – along with pumpkin decorating with Artists Working in Education (AWE).
Lots of Family Fun
Throughout the event, kids can take part in face painting, bubble play time and meet-and-greets with beloved animated movie characters and hometown heroes from the Milwaukee Fire Department and Milwaukee Police Department. With October being Fire Prevention Month, MFD’s Mobile Survive Alive House will be on-site to teach kids about fire safety. Guests can also enjoy lunch from food trucks and concession stands on-site, plus a book sale from Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library.
“We’re bringing safe, family fun to the heart of downtown with our new pumpkin palooza,” said Beth Weirick, CEO of Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. “Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee ushers in Halloween and the fall season in a way kids and families will never forget.”
