The Wine Walk in downtown Lake Geneva.
It was originally planned to take place on Mother’s Day, but that date has been moved to May 23rd. The idea behind this change was to create more activity around town when there are no scheduled events.  It’s an effort to draw more people to town. Mother’s Day falls on May 9th this year and Bacon Fest is during the same weekend. while Women’s Weekend is the following weekend, from May 14 – 16. So why not fill an open weekend? The Wine Walk is a very popular event that is hosted by the Business Improvement District and supported by many downtown businesses, which participate heavily. The shop owners, as well as the BID, expect the popularity will only grow, with it being held on a Friday that is not already dedicated to a busy day, like Mother’s Day.

The Geneva Lakeshore path will be rerouted for one week in May.
The Southshore Club is doing some maintenance and therefore the shore path has to be rerouted around the work area.  The inconvenience should not be too taxing for walkers, runners, or other people enjoying the path.  In fact, anyone using that path during the second week of May will get to see more of the Shore Club, which is a very interesting place, more than ever before.
