As the holiday season is nearly in full swing, Titletown is gearing up to celebrate with the free Winter Jubilee Warm Up on Friday, Nov. 29, and Saturday, Nov. 30.
With activities for all ages to get into the holiday spirit, the festivities will kick off this year's Titletown Winter Jubilee, presented by Mad City Windows & Baths and Performa, the series of events and programming that will be offered at Titletown all winter long.
The Winter Jubilee Warm Up will begin at 3 p.m. on Friday, when the ice skating rink opens. Throughout the event, multiple fire pits will be lit on the Plaza and a horse-drawn carriage will be giving rides around the football field. Skaters can hit the ice with Stevie the Pointer, Bernie Brewer and Rally the Red Hawk from 3 to 4 p.m., 4 to 5 p.m., and 5 to 6 p.m., respectively, and can visit with Santa's reindeer from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
Also on Friday, the Winter Jubilee Light Show will debut at 6 p.m. The seven-minute show will be on display every 30 minutes, from 6 to 9 p.m., most Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in December. The family-friendly presentation is projected onto Lambeau Field's outer west façade, and will feature a new and dazzling blend of holiday-themed lights and animation, music, special effects and fireworks.

The fun will get underway again on Saturday at 10 a.m., with the skating rink opening, as well as a "Holiday Hip Hop" dance class. Later in the day, visitors and community members can take part in a "Kick-snow-ball Tournament," "Yuletide Yoga," as well as more visits with Santa's reindeer and ice skating with mascots Ace, Bruiser, Clash and Norby. Craft enthusiasts can enjoy cocoa + coaster decorating in Rockwood Terrace from 3 to 5 p.m. or while supplies last. Additional fire pits will be lit up again to keep everyone warm and toasty all evening.
Registration is encouraged for the free fitness classes and the Kick-snow-ball Tournament, as space is limited. View the full schedule of Winter Jubilee Warm Up activities at titletown.com/events/calendar/winter-jubilee-warm-up.

The holiday events will culminate in Titletown's outdoor New Year's Eve celebration – TT NYE, presented by Pieper Electric – with extended tubing and skating hours, special activities for all ages and a midnight countdown leading up to the new year.
