The holiday season is upon us and as always, there is so much to do, including many events here in the City of Milwaukee. Every month, Chesnie Wardell from the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service shares exciting events that are happening in the city. Here is this month's list.

1. Fall Fest at Carmen Middle and High School of Science and Technology

"Whether you go to the school or not, you can come and partake in a lot of fall festivities. And then also it is a school. So, they're looking for enrollment as well. So, there will be administration and faculty and staff there to help you if you're interested in enrolling your child in the school," Wardell says.

This event will take place Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at Carmen's Northwest Campus located at 5496 North 72nd Street, Milwaukee, WI 53218. The event is free, and spots can be reserved here.
