LAKE GENEVA -- Winterfest is underway in Lake Geneva -- but there's a change this year. Vehicles will be kept OFF the ice!

Last year, about 15 vehicles ended up going through the ice on Geneva Lake.

Starting Wednesday night, February 1st, city officials won't allow vehicles on the lake until the festival ends on Sunday, February 5th.

Police said metered spots are free, and attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the free shuttle service.

It runs from Home Depot and Veterans Park to the US Bank downtown.

    To bad city officials can’t keep you from parking on the lake… They can close those entrances all they want. There’s other ways to get on the lake.

      Stop talking out of your ass. The public launch is the only way your getting a vehicle on the lake and anyone who does is a moron. Not only has this winter been bad for making ice, Geneva has the most dangerous and unpredictable ice of any lake in southeastern Wisconsin.

      Yet, the idiot out-of-towners can get enough of the novelty that is parking on a lake. At least it gives us locals something to laugh about for a while.
