Weekend Guide, November 2-4

THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY HAS ARRIVED!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Make an Old World Christmas part of your family tradition this year! Guests will celebrate the season with a visit to Old World Wisconsin, where traditions from our rich ethnic heritage come to life throughout Crossroads Village. Guests will travel back in time, seeing preparations for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day festivities in the late 19th century. They will encounter figures from Christmas stories, like St. Nicolas, Jultomte, Krampus, and, of course, Santa Claus. Hear live, traditional, carols, join in a Hymn Sing, learn about the origins of the Christmas Tree, and keep warm with cider or a cup of wassail!

This event occurs on the first three Saturdays and Sundays in December.

Old World Wisconsin Christmas Eagle Lake Country Family Fun


With Halloween officially over, all eyes look to the holidays, well not everyone’s. 😉 We asked last night if you’ll be listening to Christmas music, come November 1, and it was split. Join the conversation here.

So – what are you looking forward to this month? I love the first of a month. It’s always a fresh start, and November is the month of gratitude. Obviously, we should be thankful year-round, but it helps me to be intentional, especially as the holiday season can become overly busy and commercialized. What about you? How do you slow done and practice thankfulness this time of year? Comment below or message us.

The thing we’re most looking forward to this weekend is putting away all the Halloween decor and costumes and getting an extra hour of sleep 😉  Be sure to turn those clocks back an hour Saturday night!

Plus, we have some pretty fun promotions and announcements going on at Lake Country Family Fun!
