From its start in 1927, the Milwaukee Holiday Parade remains a cherished holiday tradition.

Thank you to Johnson Controls for their 13th year of support! In 2003, Johnson Controls committed to a financial gift on behalf of the company’s employees. They have continued to support the parade every year since, and hundreds of employees and their families volunteer their time to benefit Hunger Task Force's Food for Families program.
