GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – It’s the one time of year where you can only see some winter sculptures being made, first-hand on Broadway.
‘Winterfest On Broadway’ is set to take over Green Bay’s Broadway District tomorrow with a handful of family, friendly events scheduled. Both indoor and outdoor activities are planned, including a live art demonstration of a winter sculpture, activity stops and store specials at over 25 Broadway businesses. There will even be a winter market as well as a soup stop.
“We brought it back just a couple years ago so this is the third year that it’s been back,” said Tawny Casey, Marketing Manager for On Broadway Inc. “We’ve kind of revamped some things but still keeping in the winter spirit.”
You can vote for your favorite of six popular Broadway District soups at the Lyric Room, located at 233 North Broadway, while supplies last. Soup Stop punch cards are $5 and include samples of all the soups and a voting ballot.
“It really emphasizes that we have a lot of entrepreneurs and creatives in our district,” said Casey. “We really want to showcase them and show people that we have a lot of really interesting things going on and that it is in a lot of people’s back yards. Even if you live in De Pere or Allouez, you can still come here and enjoy what the businesses have to offer.”
Area non-profits will also be hosting winter-themed activities and area vendors will be selling their goods along Hubbard Street at the Winter Market. Those participating stores will be having special discounts as well as a variety of activities.
