INSTEAD OF BLACK FRIDAY.

The German Christmas Market in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.


The market, running the weekend after Thanksgiving only, is on the shore of Lac LaBelle.


Yes, that's the lake that lent its name to LaBelle Woodworking, manufacturer of craftsman coach kits, now doing business out of Wyoming.  There's also a yacht club on the lake: sometimes the road to the America's Cup and the Olympics passes through Oconomowoc.

On the weekend, though, it's Season's End for the Freistadt Alte Kameraden band.


The larger Christkindlmarkt in Chicago is also now open, if without the live music.
