Break the winter doldrums in downtown Oconomowoc where there's plenty to do in this winter wonderland. ChiliFest is a great family event that boasts a pond hockey tournament on Fowler Lake downtown. You can warm up with some homemade chili. Chili tasting is hosted by downtown businesses and local fundraising organzations with proceeds going to local charity. As you stroll downtown and stop in shops you can check out professional ice carvers who dot the downtown streets chiseling frozen blocks into works of art. A DJ and beer tent (also burgers and hot cocoa) are set up on the lake near the hockey tournament. A family skating rink is groomed nearby and an ice fishing clinic is also planned for the young anglers. Plenty of family fun is to be had at this event.
