Family Fun Winter Activities

The town of Lake Geneva has something spectacular planned starting on Wednesday, February 2 through Sunday, February 6, 2022.  If you are looking for family fun, look no further than the 27th annual Winterfest in Lake Geneva. This festival lasts five full days and celebrates the cold and snow of winter.

There are many activities scheduled during Winterfest that appeal to all age groups and people, there is sure to be something for everyone that attends, young and old. Some of the planned activities are: live music, refreshments, shopping, dining, magic and many other activities.

Here are a couple events you should check out.

National snow sculpting:

Lake Geneva Winterfest is home to the only snow sculpting championship in the United States. Award winning teams from across the country gather for this three day competition.  Attendees are able to watch these 15 state championship teams create larger-than-life snow sculptures. Luckily, these beautiful sculptures will remain on display until they melt.

Ice sculpture walk:

Just steps away from the competition is Lake Geneva’s third annual Ice Sculpture Walk. As you walk through the Downtown district, there are ice sculptures by business entrances. These will be on display for the weekend and until they melt.

Bonfires on the beach:

Once the sun goes down, head over to Riviera beach with the family for tasty s’mores, warm drinks, live entertainment and cozy bonfires. Admission is free and takes place on Friday, February 4 and Saturday, February 5 from 5pm to 9pm. There will be concessions featuring hot chocolate, s’mores kits, hot dogs and more. 

Gerstad Builders has communities that are not far from Lake Geneva, so head over for this great family event. Lake Geneva is only 10 minutes from Bailey Estates, The Trails of Pheasant Ridge is 15 minutes and Liberty Trails in McHenry County is 30 minutes. 

As you can see from the activities listed, there are many outdoor winter activity options near each of Gerstad Builders communities. If you are looking for a new home in Williams Bay, Poplar
