A note from the City of Oconomowoc:
Please plan ahead Saturday if you are going to be traveling through the downtown area of Oconomowoc. Roads downtown along the Christmas Parade route and the Yule Twinkle Run route will be closed. Expect road closures along these routes starting as early as 4 p.m. for staging. Roads will reopen at approximately 6 p.m.
- The parade (in red below) will begin on Oakwood Avenue and head south along Walnut Street turning west onto Wisconsin Avenue. It will proceed west on Wisconsin Avenue and turn north on North Lake Road to Lisbon Road. Once it reaches Lisbon Road, it will disperse.
- The Yule Twinkle Run (in yellow on map below) will begin shortly before the parade at 4:45 p.m. Runners will head along the same route as the parade through downtown on Wisconsin Avenue. However, runners will proceed west on Wisconsin Avenue turning south passing over South, Second, Third, Fourth and Jefferson Streets entering the Lake Country Trail. Runners will return along the same route to achieve a 5K distance ending at the driveway entrance to the Campus Parking lot across from the Community Center.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation to keep these events, participants and spectators safe during this time.
