Friday, November 27, 2015 ~ 5 - 8 p.m. Parade at 6 p.m.
The Holiday Stroll is a cherished tradition which kicks off the holiday season in Whitefish Bay on the Friday following Thanksgiving. Hosted by the Whitefish Bay Business Improvement District, the Holiday Stroll is an event for the whole community and a way for the merchants to thank everyone for their support throughout the year. A family-friendly affair with a relaxed atmosphere, the Holiday Stroll is a perfect start to the season with music, refreshments and more as you revisit refined shopping with your friends and loved ones during a stroll along Silver Spring Drive this holiday season!
Holiday Stroll Sponsors Many, many thanks to all who make great events like the Holiday Stroll possible. It really does take a village... from the people in the parade, the businesses hosting open houses and a holiday extravaganza, the village public works department that makes our street look so great, to the many families that come out to enjoy the festivities. THANK YOU!
