December Winter February Weekend Guide Lake Country Family Fun Waukesha County

Weekend Guide, November 15-17






OWW Old World Wisconsin Eagle

Move over Santa, Krampus is coming to town! This mischievous holiday creature from Central European folklore is just one of the many traditions that will be explored this December at Old World Wisconsin’s  “An Old World Christmas.”

Guests will immerse themselves in engaging and interactive experiences inspired by holiday customs brought to the state by the diverse cultures that helped shape the traditions many Wisconsin families continue to practice today.

The current month we are in is “Novembruary” 😂🥶

I’m trying to see the positive in this chilly weather, but if any of you know me IRL, I am a fan of summer all year long and don’t like being cold. Never mind the fact that I’ve lived in WI all my life 😉 You can find me under 5 layers of clothes and blankets, curled up by the fire if I’m not out and about. Plus, bonus, I discovered this morning that I have a heated steering wheel. Sometimes, it’s the little things that spark joy😍

How are you coping with the cold? We could always use new tips!

Be sure to tag us in your chilly or warm fun this weekend if you are partaking, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories!

Speaking of sparking joy, hello holiday lights and festive feelings! Please don’t get upset about the amount of Christmas and holiday fun we’ve been sharing over here at LCFF. I mean, there’s snow on the ground, and it’s Novembruary, remember?! 🤣 We did not forget about Thanksgiving, but there are so many holiday parades and Christmas tree lightings that take place now -when it’s {supposed to be} warm out. To not miss out on the fun, please pin, bookmark, save our HOLIDAY FUN GUIDE. You’ll find parades, tree lightings, all things Santa, Christmas tree farms, a shop small guide, where to find the best Christmas lights and holiday shows and MORE!

One more thing – ’tis the season for giving back if you’re able. You can find our Holiday Volunteer Guide here with 11 places/ideas/events to give back with your kids. Join the conversation on Facebook or Instagram.

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.
