Shake the Lake 2017

FUN

The mix of retro rock bands on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will draw you into the best decades of rock music with the tunes of Led Zepplin, KISS, Tom Petty and the Beatles.

On Friday, take part in the tribute by becoming a part of the band! A KISS costume contest will take place before the nation’s top touring KISS tribute band, Strutter, takes the stage. The winner of the contest gets a $100 Lake Lawn gift card and will be chosen based off crowd’s reaction.

During the day on Saturday, kids can take part in a bunch of additional activities on the lake lawn like taking on the rock climbing wall, wrecking ball & obstacle course inflatables, bubble soccer, human foosball and so much more. While this may not be the main event, there will be no shortage of fun with these unique games.

Adults get to have their fun too… with a special ticket purchase you can compete in the 3rd Annual Walworth County Bags Championship.  There will be cash payouts for the top 3 teams as well as other great prizes! The deadline to sign up your two-man team is Thursday, July 26.

FOOD

Great music and games are not the only thing to be enjoyed this weekend however. A fleet of food trucks will be arranged on the lawn to satisfy that craving for all of your summer favorites! Hot off the grill, Lake Lawn will be serving the backyard barbecue standbys like hot dogs, brats, hamburgers and cheeseburgers. The truck lineup will offer anything your heart desires, from BBQ to Polish sausages, Italian beef or steak sandwiches, Mexican dinners, and what I am most excited to try….Wood-Fired Pizza!

DRINK

Whether you’re a beer, wine or spirit drinker, Shake the Lake will be honoring the variety of  flavors and talent that are available locally! Along with festive cocktails, the event’s Craft Beverage Experience will bring together local and craft beverage brewers, distilleries and wineries; including Geneva Lakes Brewing Company, Studio Winery, Lakefront Brewery, Driftless Glen Distillery and more! Festival-goers who are of legal drinking age will even have select opportunities for FREE samples.  

With so much fun, food and drinks to be had at Shake the Lake, grab your tickets and make this your weekend getaway!

Lake Fun in Delavan, WI

Fun on the lake is the greatest way to beat the summer heat! Whether you like to swim, fish, cruise, or enjoy time on the beach; Delavan has it all. Did you know that Delavan has not one, but two lakes to have fun in? While Delavan Lake may be the most popular, Lake Comus is a natural wonderland nestled a few blocks away from historic downtown.

Or take a take a splash in The Mill Pond‘s natural spring fed swimming pond that features a beach house with changing rooms and a concession stand.

If you’re like me, I have always wanted to get out on the lake in a wave runner! That’s why you should meet me at Lake Lawn Resort, because they offer so many activities that everyone can enjoy. You can rent pontoons, wave runners, kayaks, paddle boards, and more. Or if being in the water is not your thing, you can lounge by their indoor or two seasonal outdoor pools and enjoy the sun rays.

If you’re like my dad and love to fish, then you definitely want to head to Lakeside Bait & Tackle. Rent one of their fishing boats or canoes and head out on Delavan Lake to find that prime spot to catch musky, bass or walleye. If you have a boat of your own, Community Park is your place to launch yourself into a day of fun whether you’re using the boat launch or paddling around on the beach.
