Lake Geneva Winterfest 2009

Lake Geneva will host the National Snow Sculpting Competition February 7, 2009.

This popular annual winter celebration features a multitude of recreational activities, an abundance of food and great entertainment, including helicopter rides and much more.
Each year an estimated 30,000 people see the competition as fifteen teams from states throughout the country - Alaska to Florida - compete for the national title.

The public is invited to Riviera Park (Wrigley Drive and the lakefront) the first full weekend in February to watch competitors create their designs. Weather permitting, competitors are on site 9am - 1pm and 2pm until dark. The public also gets to participate by working on sample snow blocks and voting in the "People's Choice" sculptured award. Voting is done on Saturday and awards are given at 3:00pm on Saturday.

Lake Geneva Extreme Sports will add to the festivities by hosting a walk/run. Distances include 5k and 10k and will start in Library Park (just west of Riviera Park) at 10:15am on Saturday.

Suggested Lodging for the weekend of the event:

The Cove of Lake Geneva is located on the shores of Geneva Lake in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva, just walking distance from this exciting winter event!!
