Country Christmas captures spirit, sounds of the season
Starting with a parade that seems to see increasing attendance every year, the Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism collaborated with organizations and businesses to present the 2011 "Muskego's Country Christmas." Activities were centered at the Old Settlement Centre, and a 'mascot dash' was new this year and seemed to grab the same enthusiasm from spectators that the sausage races do at a Milwaukee Brewer Game. With weather threatening, but never following through on rain, crowds enjoyed hot beverages like cider and hot chocolate, as well as an assortment of candies, kettle corn and concessions. The tree lighting capped off the festivities and was followed up by a new song about Muskego by local musician Mark Stehlow.
