The kick off to the Holiday Season is happening in the historical Broadway District on Friday, November 16! The official countdown to the illumination will be officiated by Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Broadway and Hubbard St. 

Join us as we light up the Broadway District with Christmas lights and holiday cheer! Bring the family down to enjoy a horse drawn sleigh ride, carolers, holiday window displays, and of course, Santa! Select Broadway businesses will feature specials, mini refreshment stations, and more. 

Santa will be waiting inside Gather on Broadway for pictures and to hear your Christmas wishes. Grab a Fox Communities Credit Union goody bag and smile big for your photo! Cookie decorating and a hot cocoa station will keep your warm inside of Gather's beautiful space.

Write your letters to Santa and have them mailed to the North Pole, make an ornament for your tree and have your gifts purchased in the Broadway District wrapped for free in Old Fort Square!
