LAKE GENEVA — There will be no parking on the lake during the 2018 Winterfest in Lake Geneva. This comes after an incident that occurred two years ago, when 15 vehicles broke through the ice while parked at the annual event, and were partially submerged in the water.


According to the City of Lake Geneva Police Department, Wrigley Drive is closed from the 100 block of Broad Street, to Center Street until Sunday evening.

Officials say there will be no motor vehicle lake access from Lake Geneva, including Wrigley Drive and West End Pier beginning Wednesday night, January 31st through Sunday, February 4th.

Winterfest attendees can park in the metered stalls, which are free — and there is also a free shuttle running from The Home Depot and Veterans Park to U.S. Bank located downtown.

Winterfest runs January 27th through February 4th. For more information, CLICK HERE.
