Stop by the Wisconsin Christmas Carnival of Lights, held each year at the Jellystone Park™ Campground in Caledonia, WI. Known as the “premiere drive through light display” of Milwaukee, this lighted magical adventure features a mile-long trail of wonders. You’ll see Santa’s elves hard at work in his workshop; Rudolph leading the pack on his annual Christmas Eve journey; and a 15-foot high gingerbread house covered in sparkling candy. After your cruise, stop in Santa’s Coffee Shop, where you can warm up with a homemade latte, mocha, hot cocoa, or cinnamon apple cider. While you’re there, you can pick up those last few gifts on the holiday list and even have the kids’ photo made with Santa, who stops by every Wednesday and Saturday evening. The Wisconsin Carnival of Lights is open every Sunday-Thursday from 5-9 p.m. and until 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays up through New Year’s (closed Christmas Day.) The fun begins just south of Oak Creek, WI located 1/2 mile south of the Milwaukee County line in Caledonia, WI right off HWY 38.

The Jellystone Park family campground in Caledonia Wisconsin announced the winner of their “Name that Theme Weekend” contest earlier this week. The contest was designed to allow the campers themselves to choose a theme for a weekend of camping later on this fall. The winning theme weekend idea was titled “All things Apples” and will coincide with the first annual “Fall Harvest Weekend.”
The contest continues, however, as the campground in Wisconsin is looking to replace a regularly scheduled theme weekend for next July. The final topics up for voting are:
- “MARDI GRAS”
