Milwaukee – There’s no better place to be during the holidays than right in the heart of the city, and this year The Hop, presented by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, is once again proud to contribute to the festive atmosphere in downtown Milwaukee. With our new “Holidays with The Hop” initiative, each of our 18 stations has been decorated to reflect the spirit of the season.

“With millions of lights to see, countless local businesses to support, and safe, socially-distanced activities for all ages, downtown Milwaukee is the destination for holiday fun,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. “We’re proud to have The Hop once again be a holiday attraction for the City, and so appreciative of our wonderful partners who contributed their time and talents to make these stations shine. Whether you experience ‘Holidays with The Hop’ on board the streetcar or from the comfort of your own vehicle, we encourage everyone to make a trip downtown part of their agenda this holiday season.”

The “Holidays with The Hop” initiative was made possible through the support of numerous streetcar partners, each of whom took on responsibility for designing their own unique holiday displays. Participants include:

All station displays are scheduled to be completed by Saturday, Dec. 19, and will remain on display through Sunday, Jan. 3. For more information, visit
