This is the only event on this list that doesn’t actually take place on Thanksgiving. Instead, it takes place the day before on Wednesday the 21st at the FDL County Fairgrounds Recreation Center. It’s an evening event running from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. so you can head in after work if you have to!
There will be three bands there that evening including D Willy and the Souvenirs, Road Trip, and local favorite Boogie and the Yo-Yo’z. With a 3 piece horn section and a little bit of everything in their repertoire, Boogie and the Yo-Yo’z always puts on a big show!

Every year, Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac lights up for the coming Christmas season, and the first day of the show is always Thanksgiving Day. The entire event is free, and it typically lasts up to 25 minutes. You just have to park your car, tune your radio to 87.9 FM and enjoy the show.

There is also a Snack Cabin that you and your family can visit to get snacks, hot cocoa, apple cider, and more to have a little picnic. The show typically starts around 5 p.m. as dusk sets in, and it runs until 11 p.m.
