The sandbar on Lake Chetek was jam-packed with pontoons, boats, Jet Skis and other watercrafts for the seventh annual Lake Fest on Saturday, Aug. 10. Hundreds of people spent the afternoon soaking up the sun, wading in the water, listening to the music of DJ Double D, playing water games and spending time with family and friends. Many Lake Festers attended the preparty at Red’s on Friday, Aug. 9, where dozens of raffle prizes and door prizes were given away. Chetek businesses Red’s and Gilligans once again were the sponsors of the event while the approximately $3,000 in proceeds from the event were split between the Chetek Chamber of Commerce and Walleyes for Chetek. Pictured above, a handful of people stand atop the floating barge anchored on the sandbar, while numerous people, boats and floating rafts have fun in the water.
