Waukesha’s Friday Night Live
September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Friday, repeating until September 15, 2017
This event is a family favorite of the original Lake Country Family Fun family. The streets are shut down and the kids can just be kids and sing and dance through the streets! The 2017 Waukesha Friday Night Live series is being hosted on 10 stages in downtown Waukesha that are sponsored by various businesses. The event starts at 6:30 pm and runs through 9:00 pm each Friday night. Gather your family and friend and come on down and relax, grab a bite to eat, listen to some music and what downtown Waukesha has to offer.
The series starts the first Friday in June and runs through the last Friday in September.
Plus, for each of the sixteen weeks of this year’s “Friday Night Live” events in downtown Waukesha, the Waukesha Salvation Army will have a booth near the popular Five Points intersection, at 307 West Main Street.
Each week through the middle of September, a different Salvation Army program in Waukesha County will be featured. The Waukesha Salvation Army information booth will be directly across from the historic Clark Hotel, in-between the Milwaukee Pizza restaurant and the former Bangles and Bags accessories shop. Here is the June schedule for the Waukesha Salvation Army booth, and items for potential donation, if interested:
