 HOLIDAYS IN DOOR COUNTYGetting Ready to Capture the Spirit of a Door County Christmas Every Door County community has its own special holiday event, and I try to attend as many as I can.  However, since the mid 2000s, one of my favorites has been Sister Bay's Capture the Spirit of a Door County Christmas, which is held the weekend of Thanksgiving, with events on Friday the 25th and Saturday.   Additionally, this year The Country Walk Shops will also feature events uptown, as well as downtown.  See here for a list of activities for 2017's Capture the Spirit of a Door County Christmas. Next week we'll have a few FEATURED SISTER BAY PROPERTIES that we will tie into this event by using their virtual tours in conjunction with "virtual holiday open houses" for Capture the Spirit.  If you wan...

Sister Bay's three year Department of Transportation road project will wrap up next spring, but the road construction certainly won't stop the "Granddaddy" of all festival's this weekend, Sister Bay's Fall Festival.  Originally envisioned as a party for the locals that were wrapping up the tourism season, this three day festival has turned into one of the biggest and best-known Fall Festivals in the State of Wisconsin, with it's one-of-a-kind Ping Pong Ball Drop, where ping pong balls are dropped OUT of a helicopter (weather permitting) with thousands of spectators below, hoping for a prize.  This is a "walk to downtown Sister Bay" festival--most of the roads will be closed for festival activities. This festival features food, fun, entertainment, arts & crafts, activities, childrens' ac...
