Drone Show Party – Villa Terrace Centennial Celebration

Villa Terrace
2220 N Terrace Ave

WMSE is excited to sponsor the Villa Terrace Centennial Celebration!

On Wednesday, July 10 at 9 p.m., 400 drones will take flight and light up the night sky to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Villa Terrace Art Museum. The 20-minute drone show along the Lake Michigan shoreline is free and open to the public and will feature approximately 20 different formations that depict various elements of Villa Terrace, including the museum’s signature Hermes statue and koi fish.

The drones will take off just south of Bradford Beach and perform over Lake Michigan across a span of 600-700 feet, which is the equivalent of a football field and a half. Milwaukeeans can enjoy the show from a variety of vantage points along the shores of Lake Michigan or purchase a ticket to a special Drone Show Viewing Party at Villa Terrace. The drone show will be accompanied by a special soundtrack, created by artist Ray Chi, and simulcast on WMSE 91.7.

One of the best ways to watch the 100th Anniversary Drone Show is on Villa Terrace’s beautiful patio that overlooks Lake Michigan. On Wednesday, July 10, 7 – 10 p.m., the Friends of Villa Terrace is hosting a special Drone Show Viewing Party with lots of “illuminating” activities planned including WMSE DJs. Tickets are $25 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 – 17 and free for children four and under and can be purchased at VillaTerrace100.com.
