Thanksgiving Weekend Guide

THE Thanksgiving WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH OUTDOOR THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND WITH KIDS!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Show your support for Lake Country Playhouse and other Non-Profits and small businesses you love on December 1st, 2020 for Giving Tuesday!

Conveniently located in Hartland!

Thanksgiving weekend is here! Have you seen our Thanksgiving Guide to Lake Country for those celebrating locally, brought to us by Slo Motion BBQ? The guide is filled with tips leading up to the holiday, restaurants that offer catering, what’s open/closed and how to spend Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday LOCALLY and SMALL as well as opting outside over the weekend. And the forecast looks amazing for bundling up and spending the weekend outside, socially distanced in the fresh air.

Speaking of holidays, after Thanksgiving it is on like Donkey Kong in terms of celebrating the holidays (if your family celebrates). Menomonee Falls will host their holiday tree lightings over the weekend as part of their holiday market. Plus, there are  2 Christmas parades this weekend as well: Watertown and West Bend.

Normally, our family looks forward to one of our favorite events, The German Christmas Market of Oconomowoc, however, that event has been cancelled many months ago. Similar in nature, however, is Christmas in Okauchee, which kicks off Wednesday night, takes Thursday off, and fills out the rest of the weekend. If you are going, plan to social distance. 

To not miss out on the fun, please pin, bookmark, save our HOLIDAY FUN GUIDE. You’ll find:

  • Drive thru events
  • AMAZING light displays!! (and we just added new ones to the free listing!)
  • {Some} parades
  • {Some} tree lightings
  • Where to find Santa virtually and social distant friendly
  • Where to drop off letters to Santa
  • Open Christmas tree farms
  • The biggest local shop small guide yet
  • and MORE!

Be sure to tag us in your festive holiday fun this weekend if you are partaking @lakecountryfamilyfun, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories! Thank you to the many that tagged us last weekend at the walk through Country Christmas event 🤗🥰

One more thing – ’tis the season for giving back if you’re able. You can find our Holiday Volunteer Guide here with ways to support the most vulnerable in a safe way. Be sure to include your kids in on the conversation to create a giving mindset at a young age. Join the conversation on Facebook or Instagram(2019) or Instagram(2020).  So, if you have ideas to add to our Volunteer Guide – shoot us a message!

Lastly, Lake Country Family Fun did our research, like we do, and found all the fun things for you and your family to do this weekend, too.

As always, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides since SPRING, social media posts and our e-newsletters, and I will continue to say it, because this year has been a one, and it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe.
