‘A constant companion on my patio’: Santas bring holiday cheer atop one city’s balconies

Some Santas sitting blown up on balconies and the Third Ward have caught the eyes of onlookers walking by 12 news’s James Stratton introduces us to the elves behind the towering Saint Nick’s taking over one condo complex on the top floor of the marine terminal lofts more happy and feel the Christmas spirit waves. Tracy Wadsworth’s jolly old Saint Nick. I love Christmas and this, I don’t have *** Christmas tree this year, but it doesn’t matter. I feel like I have *** constant companion on my patio, but her companion bowing over the balcony isn’t alone. What started as just one Santa here at *** building in the third ward turned to 23 and now 15 Santas all lined up on the balconies of this building. The original Santa stood atop Bradley Fell’s balcony five years ago, but he wanted his neighbor to get in on the fun. We maybe broke onto his patio and climbed over and installed it for him and put *** and sent him *** picture as *** gag. Uh Then Tracy got hers and then one by one by one that kept popping up and it kind of reached *** critical mass and then everyone started doing it. Peer pressure. No, it was good. It was uh good. The good kind of holiday. Peer pressure. That little bit of peer pressure now turns heads sparks selfies and spreads Christmas. Cheer. People drive up from this intersection here and you see *** smile come on their face immediately, but it just kind of made our little corner of the world and the ward nicer happier, I guess. So, the next time you’re in their corner of the world where Milwaukee Street meets Erie, look up and enjoy things like this are, are the things that give me joy. So I’m happy to be part of sharing that with others in the third war. James Stratton Wisn 12 News. Well, these neighbors hope to get the river side of the building into the Holiday Spirit by having them at Santa’s. They also challenge other buildings to spread cheer in the same way.

‘A constant companion on my patio’: Santas bring holiday cheer atop one city’s balconies

14 blow-up Santas sit atop the balconies on the Marine Terminal Lofts in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

On the top floor of the Marine Terminal Lofts in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, waves Tracey Wadsworth’s jolly old Saint Nick. “I love Christmas, I don’t have a Christmas tree this year, but it doesn’t matter,” she said, standing next to the 9-foot-tall blow-up Santa. “I feel like I have a constant companion on my patio.”That constant companion started as a single Santa next door, on Bradley Fell’s balcony, five years ago. But Fell wanted to get his neighbor in on the fun.”We maybe broke into his patio and climbed over and installed it for him,” Fell said with a laugh. “Sent him a picture as a gag. Then Tracey got hers, then one by one, they kept popping up. It kind of reached critical mass, and everyone started doing it.”Now, 14 blow-up Santas sit atop the balconies on the east and south sides of the building on Erie Street near North Milwaukee Street. One Santa sits on the west side of the building, overlooking the Milwaukee River. Fell, who is now on the board for the condo building, sends the link of where to buy Santa to anyone who asks. “People drive up from this intersection here, and you see a smile come on their face immediately,” Fell said. Those smiles, and spreading joy, is why he and the other condo owners put them up.”It just kind of made our little corner of the ward nicer, happier, I guess,” he added.”Things like this are things that give me joy,” Wadsworth added. “So, I’m happy to be sharing that with others.”As for next year? The goal is always to add Santas to balconies at Marine Terminal Lofts and across the Third Ward to continue to bring holiday cheer.”I’d like to see some of the other buildings down the way sort of make this a Santa-centric area,” Fell said.
