(WFRV) – Nothing says Christmas like nostalgia and there’s a hefty dose of it in downtown Green Bay. Local 5 Live gets details on how you can bring back some fun memories at the Neville Public Museum.
For more, head to nevillepublicmuseum.org.
Celebrate the holiday season with us at the Neville! See our Snow Babies, Enchanted Forest, and charming “Dolls of Christmas Past” that once adorned the H.C. Prange department store in Holiday Memories of Downtown Green Bay.
Other holiday events include the Children Only Shop and Bruce the Spruce, the lovable talking Christmas tree who once chatted with holiday shoppers at the H.C. Prange department store. Holiday Memories is a wonderful family tradition.
