Holiday happenings continue at the lake! This past weekend was the last chance to experience a 19th-century celebration of Christmas tales and holiday customs at Old World Wisconsin near Eagle. The Festival of Trees in Williams Bay continues to brighten the village every weekend. Stop by the lakefront to see the fir trees decked out in their holiday splendor. A must-see this holiday season is the gingerbread house display at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. Located right outside Ristoranté Brissago, these fabulous creations are a part of the resort’s Christmas in the Country celebration that runs through the holidays.
