Free holiday display now open: "The Magical World of the Snow Queen"


BMO Harris Bank’s Festive Holiday Display returned today for the whole community to enjoy. This year, the family-friendly tradition features the theme “Northern Lights, The Magical World of the Snow Queen”

The display is free and open to the public at BMO Harris Bank location in downtown Milwaukee located at 770 N. Water Street.

Celebrating its 43rd year, this annual holiday tradition transforms BMO Harris Bank’s downtown lobby into a holiday spectacular. This year, it features more than 150 life-sized Steiff animals dressed as the Snow Queen and her court in a magical winter wonderland.

(Steiff animals are collectors’ items originally made in Germany by Margarete Steiff, who hand-stitched the first tiny elephant and stuffed it with straw. Many of the figures are no longer being made. The world-renowned Steiff Company made the original teddy bear in 1903.)

Use the hashtag #BMOHolidayDisplay on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to share in this festive celebration.

BMO Harris Bank will again donate $5 to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin for each visitor to the Holiday Display, and invites the public to help reach the goal of donating $30,000 to help those in need this holiday season.

“Especially around the holiday season our stock tends to run low. So we are grateful that BMO Harris Bank has once again partnered with us to provide food for many families in need during this time of year,” said Charles McLimans, President of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

Nov. 30 – Jan. 4

Monday through Friday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Weekends, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
