'It's tradition:' Miller Valley Holiday Lites return for 16th year
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- For the 16th consecutive year, a holiday light display will transform Miller Valley at the Milwaukee brewery during the holiday season.
Nearly 750,000 lights synchronized to holiday music will light up the area.
The Miller Valley Holiday Lites display will also feature more than 1,300 feet of garland and a beer keg tree comprised of 225 barrels.
People who visit the display will get a free brewery mini tour, special giveaways and discounts at the Miller Brewery shop.
Organizers say this year's display is the largest of its kind in the Midwest.
"I think it's tradition, there's a lot of people that did this in the 50s and 60s as they were kids, or maybe with their children now they're either bringing their grandchildren or bringing their own children back and kind of reintroducing this great tradition that we've had in the city for so many years," said Kindra Loferski, manager of guest relations.
The free Holiday Lites Show takes place each Friday and Saturday starting Friday, Dec. 6 and running through Saturday, Dec. 21.
Shows run every 20 minutes from 4:40 p.m. until 9 p.m., at the Miller visitor center near 42nd and State. Visitors are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item to donate.
