The event was held on Saturday, Nov. 10 at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Families attending the Red Kettle Kickoff family event were entertained by Radio Disney, The Salvation Army Brass Ensemble, the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, Captain Food Fight, the Red Kettle bounce house, a sleight of hand magician, caricature artists and they were able to play some exciting games.
