Kris Kringle Tour
December 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
RACINE – Join us for our 4th annual Kris Kringle Tour on Saturday, Dec. 11 from 11am-2pm. This is a free event hosted by the Downtown Racine Corporation and O&H Danish Bakery. Celebrate Racine’s Danish heritage by sampling different Kringle flavors at over 32 downtown locations.
“The Kris Kringle Tour is the perfect way to spend a day with family and friends, all while supporting our small businesses and celebrating Racine’s legacy as the Kringle capital of the world.” said Kelly Kruse, Executive Director at the Downtown Racine Corporation.
While downtown you are encouraged to grab some breakfast, lunch, coffee or a drink and see first-hand why Downtown Racine is magical this time of year. This is another great opportunity to get a gift for everyone on your list, all while supporting local businesses who need your support this holiday season.
“Racine loves its Kringle! That’s because the people of Racine learned before any others that Kringle, the sharing pastry, makes any size gathering better. Here at O&H we are honored to bake our Kringle for you to enjoy with others.” said Eric Olesen, owner of O&H Bakery.
Kris Kringle maps are available at racinedowntown.com, on the Downtown Racine Facebook page or can be picked up at the Downtown Racine Corporation office (425 Main St.).
While you’re strolling through downtown don’t forget to vote in the Holiday Window Decorating Competition. Downtown merchants have done an amazing job making their storefronts look like whimsical winter wonderlands. Voting will take place in-store or on our Facebook page, where you can you ‘like’ your favorites. The contest will end on Dec. 23.
Metered parking will be free all day. Parking times will be enforced to ensure the turnover of spaces. Excludes all ramps with gates and Lakefront Lot.
