The rumor has now been confirmed.
Ice Castles announced the location of this winter’s ice castle location, and it will be in the Town of Geneva on the driving range of Geneva National. Last winter the ice castle was located on the Riviera Beach in downtown Lake Geneva and was reported to be the most successful castle the Ice Castle Company has ever operated. Jessie Stone, the project manager for the ice castle productions, has moved to Lake Geneva and had planned to have the ice castle continue as a regular attraction in or around Lake Geneva. The search for a more permanent location began last year when it was recognized that the beach area in downtown Lake Geneva would not work for the ice castle crew any longer. The goal became to find a home for the ice castle attraction that Jessie, as well as the city, and the people of Lake Geneva, could all agree on.
However, a location and agreement between all party’s, could not be reached within the city limits of Lake Geneva, so the search was expanded to neighboring communities. The Geneva National area is not considered a permanent home for the ice castle. Efforts will continue by Jessie, and the ice castle owners, look to find a more suitable home for the future ice castles (hopefully) in Lake Geneva.
Person of the Week
Vandals hit local shops.
The Lake Geneva Police Department responded to an activated burglar alarm Saturday, October 12th, at 4:31 a.m. at both the US Cellular and Spectrum stores in the Geneva Square shopping center. The front windows of both stores were broken. Officers on the scene cleared the businesses, and no subjects were found. The video surveillance did show two subjects wearing all black. Less than an hour later Burlington Police Department responded to a burglar alarm at the US Cellular, Talk of the Town store, on Milwaukee Avenue. This store also had its front window broken, and surveillance again revealed two subjects wearing black clothing and black masks. The break-ins could be related, and possibly involve the same subjects. Theft of the store’s merchandise is believed to be the motivation behind the break-ins. It’s too bad the store’s merchandise didn’t include belts, as the surveillance videos revealed enough sartorial style to earn the suspects a nickname; “the butt crack” bandits!
