There’s something special about celebrating the holidays away from the hustle and bustle of big cities and embracing the small-town charm of destinations that are small in size, but big in experiences. That’s exactly what you will find in Fort Atkinson.
On Dec. 3, Fort Atkinson’s lighted holiday parade coincides with their Holiday Market, which features handmade crafts, fresh produce, jams, soaps, honey and a wealth of art vendors at multiple indoor market locations. Visitors to the Holiday Market will also enjoy strolling carolers, trolley rides and horse-drawn carriage rides — experiences that will leave an indelible mark on your holiday merry making.
A visit to Fort Atkinson’s famed Fireside Dinner Theatre is also a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays. “Scrooge the Musical” is a joyful retelling of the world’s most beloved Christmas story, Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Catch it through Dec. 23.
