Winter Fun and Events
What to do when the Frozen Tundra...freezes?
Well, move indoors to start with. The Weidner Center-on the UWGB campus-and the Meyer Theater-just two blocks away-have a winter's worth of shows planned. Get ready for Christmas with “A Frank's Christmas” or ring out the year with “The Best of 2016”. Enjoy concerts by the Green Bay Civic Symphony or the Allouez Village Band. The Brown County Arena and the Resch Center also have great events going on all through the cold weather months. Take the kids to “Sesame Street Live” or spend some time looking forward to springtime at the Home and Garden Show or the Winter Wedding Show. Just because the Packers aren't playing every weekend doesn't mean that you can't experience the history of the team at the Packers Hall of Fame every day.
Spend at least some time outside. Hop on the “Polar Express” at the National Railroad Museum. Or stay indoors for their “Festival of Trees”. Or step back and enjoy the “Spirit of Christmas Past” at Heritage Hill State Park. Go to the NEW Zoo and go indoors to feed a giraffe or stay outdoors and try to tell the penguins that it is too cold... Or you can still visit the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary and walk the trails.
New Leaf Farmer's Market
Huh? Farmer's Market? What is this-locally grown snow cones? No...put away your gloves and scarves, and go just six blocks to the KI Convention Center for the indoor New Leaf/Bellin Health Winter Farmer's Markets. Meat, veggies, bakery, canned goods, coffee-along with art and music-will see you through until spring.
