Downtown Ice CAPE-ade

February 12 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Participants are encouraged to dress in their best superhero attire with capes provided for children ages 10 and under on a first-come, first-served basis. Free ice skate rentals will also be provided, while supplies last, courtesy of WaterStone Bank.

Coordinated by Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21, “Downtown Ice CAPE-ade” will feature ice skating with your favorite comic book superheroes, tunes spun by DJ Shawna, official DJ and producer of the Milwaukee Bucks, an ice sculpture photo op from Art Below Zero, and a free s’mores station. Meanwhile, guests can meet-and-greet with everyday heroes, including local Olympians, the Milwaukee Fire Department and Milwaukee Police Department.

“Downtown Ice CAPE-ade is a new event designed to beat the winter blues,” said Beth Weirick, CEO of Milwaukee Downtown BID #21. “We look forward to offering families an afternoon of cold-weather fun while celebrating the hero in all of us.”

Additionally, local restaurants and cafes will offer specials to families attending the event. Specials include free hot chocolate from Fiddleheads Coffee, BMO Tower, 790 N. Water Street; a complimentary dessert with a purchase at SafeHouse, 779 N. Front Street; and 20% off at Proof Pizza, 139 E. Kilbourn Avenue, located inside the Saint Kate.

“Downtown Ice CAPE-ade,” sponsored by WaterStone Bank, is coordinated by Milwaukee Downtown BID #21 in partnership with Milwaukee County Parks. For details on “Downtown Ice CAPE-ade” and restaurant offers, visit www.milwaukeedowntown.com.
