November weekend guide Lake Country Family Fun Waukesha County things to do

Weekend Guide, November 20-22

According to fellow readers on Facebook and Instagram, many are in the holiday spirit, and this weekend might see some snowflakes flurrying down. ❄️ Now it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas🎶 And it’s the perfect weekend to hop in the car and drive through some twinkling holiday lights! Are you wondering what other things there are to do on the weekend for your family? Just to be aware, Governor Evers has issued Executive Order #94 which to summarize, urges WI residents to stay home, socially distance, wash hands thoroughly, and wear a mask on necessary trips. The City of Oconomowoc has more recently this week, put out a similar notice. Lake Country Family Fun has done the research so you don’t have to wonder about social distance friendly outings. We love seeing families outdoors in the fresh air where we can enjoy these natural resources and still be socially distant from our neighbors. So, if you’re looking for outdoor family fun weekend things to do – you’re in the right spot with the Lake Country Family Fun Weekend Guide! See below. ⤵️


What to expect this weekend – fall temps and a chance for rain or snow.

Oh, and if the weather is making your porch pumpkins look sad and you live in the City of Waukesha, drop them off for free anytime in November at the Drop Off Center! They will be composted by the City. #zerowaste

Lastly, 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. 

So, we want to see all your weekend fun! Be sure to tag @lakecountryfamilyfun in your weekend fun, your activities, your survival strategies, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories. Thank you to the many who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰
