Friday will kick off the weekend with wine tasting at the 1901 Victorian House. The Lake Mills Area Historical Society will host this fundraiser from 5 to 7 p.m. and the cost is $12, with a keepsake wine glass, wines and hors d’oeuvres. Topping off the night will be the annual Friday night street dance and beer garden, featuring Killer Hayseeds from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Saturday fun starts at 7 a.m. with registration for the 5K fun run/walk, and the parade is at 10:30 a.m. with the community picnic to follow. The parade will start early this year at 10:30 a.m., as opposed to last year’s evening start time.

The afternoon is filled with activities near Oakwood Park including a performance by Sig’s Band, inflatable games, vendors and a triathlon for children. The pedal pull and three-on-three basketball contest is available for kids of all ages. The night will round out with another street dance and beer garden, featuring So Big, again from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Sunday activities will include a pancake, eggs and sausage breakfast served by the American Legion Post 235; annual radio-controlled airplane show at the airport and an open house at the 1901 Victorian House from 1 to 3 p.m..
