Christmas In Minocqua

November 24th, 2018

Santa has made his list, checked it twice and everyone in the Minocqua area is nice! Santa and Mrs. Claus  are making their annual stop in Downtown Minocqua for Christmas in Minocqua. They will arrive on a horse-drawn wagon at Gaslight Square. The pair will visit with children at the Gaslight Square Shoppes. Bring your camera to take pictures of your child with Santa. Santa and Mrs. Claus will lead the way to Veterans Park for carols and the official lighting of the Christmas display.

Enjoy the decorations downtown, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, visit Santa's reindeer at the Minocqua Museum and 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.
