The Lake Geneva Ghost Walk is back up and running. They offer tours on Friday and Saturday nights from 7:30-9:00 pm or 9:30-11:00 pm, with a cost of $20 per person. The tour meets near downtown Lake Geneva at Seminary Park and you can expect to hear local folklore, real ghost stories, paranormal experiences, Native American legends and much more! There are no rent-a-ghouls to jump out and scare you, just some good local fun while learning the history of Lake Geneva.
The Ice Castle is gone.
Totally. But what is left behind, and what of the future for a repeat of this successful project? Jessie, the site manager, has proven to be a class act and great working technician. Jessie assures everyone that the beach will be just as it was found before the project was constructed. It would appear since Jessie is purchasing a home to live in Lake Geneva part-time, that this is a man who can be trusted. There was also plenty of talk about the ice castle returning next winter, but no conclusions were reached about whether that would occur or if it does occur, then what location would it be built upon? Although the castle was a grand success for the company that built it, the company was not totally happy with building it on the sand, or in such a restricted and closed off location as the beach presented. There will be more on this subject in future publications until these questions have been resolved.
