Kick off the season with Christmas in Minocqua! Santa will arrive on a horse-drawn wagon at noon to the Gaslight Square Mall and will visit with children. Bring your camera! Santa will lead the way to Veterans Park for carols and the official lighting of the Christmas tree at approx. 4:00 pm. Enjoy the decorations downtown, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, nibble on warm roasted chestnuts while doing your holiday shopping at the numerous unique stores on the Island. Many of the merchants are planning special activities and sales for the day. There are plenty of holiday activities off the Island as well.
