Candy Cane Lane opens for 27th year on Friday, Nov. 23rd

WEST ALLIS -- The lights will be turned on for the 27th annual Candy Cane Lane in West Allis on Friday evening, November 23rd.

The West Allis neighborhood bounded by Oklahoma and Montana Avenues and 92nd to 96th Street is transformed into a winter wonderland in November and December to benefit the MACC Fund. This year's goal is $105,000.

The holiday lights will be aglow from Nov. 23 – Dec. 26, 6-9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 5-10 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

The event is free, but visitors are encouraged leave a donation. The donations translate into a perpetual gift of hope and life for children with cancer. The official collection site is at the corner of 95th & Manitoba.

Santa Claus will make an appearance every night from December 6 through December 23rd.

The MACC Fund is leading the fight against childhood cancer and related blood disorders. The primary beneficiary of MACC Fund support is the Midwest Children's Cancer Center, located at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
