WEST ALLIS — The lights were turned on along Candy Cane Lane in West Allis on Friday, November 25th!

The popular Candy Cane Lane festivities continue through December 26th — the day after Christmas.

Candy Cane Lane began back in December of 1984 — when a group of neighbors in West Allis joined together to collect donations for the MACC Fund — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc., in honor of a neighbor’s child who had been diagnosed with cancer.
