Lake Mills has a LOT going on this weekend!

Published On: Wednesday, September 29, 2010By Categories: BlogTags: , , , , , ,


The first weekend in October is an especially busy one for Lake Mills this year, and a wide variety of events can be found both Saturday and Sunday – which means spending the entire weekend in the area at one of Jefferson County’s great hotels or bed & breakfasts is a must! Saturday, October 2 is the Tyranena Oktoberfest Bike Ride, followed by the Painted Ladies’ Annual Fundraiser that evening. Over 1700 bike riders converge on Lake Mills to take part in the ride. Three bands, lots of food and plenty of beer flow when the wheels return to home base at Tyranena Brewing Company. After a quick change of clothes (or maybe a dip in Rock Lake, temperature permitting), it’s off to downtown Lake Mills for an evening of silent and live auctions, more beer (and wine), food, music and fun. It’s the premiere fundraiser of the year in Lake Mills, and all proceeds from this evening event benefit the Lake Mills Main Street Program as well as the Arts Alliance of Greater Lake Mills. Be sure to get a little sleep before returning downtown on Sunday morning for the annual Fall Festival of Color on October 3. Held in Commons Park, you’ll find crafts, antiques, and more food!

There are many other activities going on in Jefferson County this weekend as well – be sure to check out the blog posting “Jefferson County Events – September 27 – October 3, 2010” for additional events in neighboring communities to enjoy!

Katie was the Executive Director of the Lake Mills Main Street Program from 2011 to 2019 and was the Secretary for the Jefferson County Tourism Council. In 2019, she retired to explore a new fashion degree and travel throughout the world. Katie was also a writer and contributed a great deal of copy for our website and printed guide. She was a great asset to our organization and we'll miss her!
