With Halloween and Daylight Savings Time in the rear view mirror, it can only mean that it is finally time to kick off Festive Friday Eves in Cedarburg.

The annual holiday event runs for five straight Fridays starting at Cedar Creek Settlement (N70 W6340 Bridge Road) and features live music, cookouts, wine tasting, carriage rides and plenty of great activities for the whole family. The best part? All five weekly events are free thanks.
