2014 Schedule for Lake Geneva Concerts in the Park is out!
One of the joys about living in SE Wisconsin is all the wonderful activities we have all summer long! Many of the things to do around Lake Geneva are family friendly. A great opportunity to spend a beautiful evening enjoying music and overlooking the lake is at the free concerts in the park.
Lake Geneva Concerts in the Park are on Thursday nights, all summer long, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Flat Iron Park is where you’ll see the live entertainment in Lake Geneva. If you’re not familiar with where Flat Iron Park is, it’s the triangle shaped park between Wrigley Drive and Center Street (in front of Sprecher’s Restaurant). Just look for the gazebo!
This summer’s line up is sure to have something for everybody! Bring your lawn chairs or a blanket, pack a picnic dinner (or get carryout from any of the local restaurants (Sprecher’s Pub, Gino’s East, or Popeye’s are all right there) and bring the whole family. The music will be great, and you can’t beat the views being along the lakeshore!
