Although families have been busy preparing for the start of school, summer fun was still very much on the agenda for many over the weekend. Lake Geneva’s annual Maxwell Street Days enticed shoppers to downtown boutiques and stores for bargains all weekend. Delavan’s Heritage Fest celebration highlighted the city’s unique history and culture with a variety of music, dance demonstrations, tours, and even circus performances. And on Sunday, the weather finally cooperated for an always fun afternoon of tubing around the lake.
