Even though it’s mid-August, the never-ending list of things to do in the Geneva Lakes area still shows no sign of getting any shorter! Last week was action-packed with fun-filled events, including a trip to the Lake Geneva Farmers Market held at Horticultural Hall and a night spent at Music by the Lake, enjoying Creedence Clearwater Revisited, featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford. On Sunday, art lovers flocked to Art in the Park in Lake Geneva’s Flat Iron Park to admire the work of dozens of talented artists from throughout the country. (Check out our reader’s photos below.)
