It’s another busy week in downtown Lake Geneva. The ILYA Championship and Lake Geneva’s Venetian Fest each started their festivities on Wednesday, offering plenty to do for both tourists and locals. Watching the races on Geneva Lake is such a unique sight; stop downtown if you’ve never seen them before! Last Sunday, we visited the Antique Flea Market in Elkhorn. With over 500 dealers, this is one of the biggest outdoor flea markets in the state. Mark your calendars – their final 2016 market date is September 25.
