Thanksgiving Weekend in Milwaukee 2013

Thanksgiving in Milwaukee

Every year we gather in the kitchen or around the dining room table with family and friends, celebrating all that we’re thankful for. And, more obviously, gobbling up autumn goodies like turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce, watching football and scouring retail ads for Black Friday holiday deals. It’s been our tradition for so long, sometimes it’s hard to think of what else you can do that weekend. You’re in luck, Potawatomi is here to help!
