Settle says there is plenty to do in Milwaukee over the holidays – A Christmas Carol, Charlie Brown Christmas, Elf: The Musical, The Nutcracker, Holiday Folk Fair, Holiday Lights Festival (Starts Nov 17), Holiday Parade (coming up Nov 19!), and more.
Next weekend is Veterans Day and Milwaukee is hosting plenty of events to honor veterans and active military.

CMP Tactical Lazer Tag has partnered with Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative to give back this Veteran’s Day November 11, 2016. Half the admission price on special Veteran’s Day Benefit laser tag sessions that day will be donated directly to MHVI. There will also be bins located at CMP for donations of canned foods, toiletries, and other needed items.
There’s a great concert event called “Guitars for Vets: Rock to Remember” at the Historic Best Place at Pabst Brewery on Nov 10 – tickets are $10 in advance and proceeds go to Guitars for Vets, which helps veterans heal through music.
“A Veterans Day Big Band Salute” is on Nov 12 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, with 35 local performers and a tribute to the flag raising at Iwo Jima
