Light up the Lake in Wayzata

Light up the Lake
Join the City of Wayzata for a magical evening of lights and winter cheer.

The holidays are upon us and what better way to celebrate than the annual Light up the Lake event in Wayzata. Organized by the city and the chamber of commerce, the celebration has been a staple in the community for years, bringing businesses and residents together for a night of holiday festivities.

This year, the event will be from 4:30–7 p.m. November 25, taking place around Depot Park and Panoway Plaza. It also serves as a kick-off for Small Business Saturday on November 26

The mayor-led tree lighting ceremony is accompanied by a variety of activities, including wagon rides along Lake Street, hot cocoa, letters to Santa, holiday music and more. Make sure to bring a toy to donate to the Toys for Tots drive, hosted by the Wayzata Police Department. The Fire Department will be there, too, hosting the parade. Rumor has it that a special visitor from the North Pole and his reindeer will also be in attendance.
