Frequently Asked Questions

In the past, there were gaps in the music. What about this year?

This year, Lake Days will run two stages, which allows one band to set up while the other is playing. Barring technical difficulties, this should give you continuous music throughout the festival.

If I purchase a wrist band, can I leave and return later?

Yes. As long as your wrist band is still on your wrist, you can leave or reenter the park as often as you need. Great for families with small children. Each day will have a separate color, so you will not be able to use a wrist band more than one day.

When do the fireworks start?

Normally, fireworks start at 10:10 pm weather permitting on both Friday and Saturday night!

Will there be more rides this year?

Yes. In addition to free rides (with cover charge) the amusement company will be adding more rides in the boat landing parking lot.

Are lawn chairs allowed?

There are no seats. Lawn chairs are allowed. Use them for watching the Must-Skis, the fireworks and listening to the music.

Will the Mustskis perform at Lake Days?

Yes, they will have a special show on Saturday.

Is there a cover charge?

There is. BUT.... This year, we have partnered with the people who bring the carnival rides and Mad City Windows. This means the cover charge will be only $8 per day (for those five and older), and will give you unlimited carnival rides and full access to the music all day and evening long!
