16 Holiday Celebrations Feed the live reindeer, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, or shop for holiday gifts. Experience the Magic – Elkhart Lake Style! Winter is a magical time of year in Elkhart Lake. Usher in the seasonal activities and spend some time ice skating, cross-country skiing, sledding, ice fishing or snowmobiling. Or, stay inside and curl up in front of a roaring fireplace or soak in a whirlpool tub. The holiday season kicks off on Thanksgiving Day with a magnificent buffet at The Osthoff Resort and the magic continues during Old World Christmas Market held November 30 – December 9, 2012. The village is all decked out with garland, ribbons, and bows. Clicking hoofbeats on the ground draw attention to the beautiful, white carriages touring the town. Lights are twinkling and children are smiling. December is filled with holiday workshops, hayrides and time with Santa and St. Nicholas. Cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus is always a favorite holiday activity. A Christmas Day Buffet and New Year's Eve Celebration crown the festivities with style! Winter in Elkhart Lake is beauti- ful and peaceful. Snuggle into the plush accommodations and take time for yourself after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has come and gone. Relax – and treat yourself to the village's best dining and spa experiences. Elkhart Lake offers everything on your wish list. Choose from a variety of holiday packages created especially for you. Select Osthoff Holiday, Winter Retreat, Aspira Holiday or The Christmas Market Package. Pick one out for yourself or make it a holiday gift for that special someone and spend time together in beautiful Elkhart Lake. Children's Holiday Workshops The month of December is filled with holiday activities including a Cookie Decorating Workshop and Ornament Making with Mrs. Claus, Breakfast with Santa, and Brunch with St. Nicholas and his Reindeer. The entire family will enjoy the holiday hayrides, festive decorations, and a very special visit with Santa's reindeer. Old World Christmas Market As the arrival of the Christmas Market transforms the beautiful grounds of The Osthoff Resort into a winter wonderland, exhibitors and shoppers need not fret the cold weather as this event takes place inside a heated grand tent the size of a football field. Old World Christmas Market draws international and regional exhibitors displaying their specialty products in booths adorned in fragrant swags of evergreens and thousands of twinkling white lights. Sharing the Holidays Enjoy simple, winter pleasures inside and outside your suite. Sip a glass of wine in front of your own fireplace or gather with friends and family in the beautifully decorated Elk Room. Dining rooms offer privacy for your personal time together. Ice skating on the Osthoff pond lets you frolic in the snow and return to the fireplace in no time. Nearby trails offer convenient access to cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and snowmobiling. www.elkhartlake.com
