Fish Fries And Dances At Devil’s Lake State Park Begin June 7 and 8

Two favorite summer events at Devil’s Lake State Park in Baraboo, Wis., resume June 7 and 8, 2013:  the weekly Friday Night Fish Fry In The Park and Big Band Dance In The Park Saturday evenings.

Baraboo’s Elite Catering & Bakery will again prepare and serve its tasty fish and chicken with a changing array of side dishes every Friday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., June 7 through Aug. 30, 2013. You’ll find their outdoor kitchen in front of the historic Chateau at the Park’s north shore. Enjoy dinner on the shore indoors or outside under the towering oaks. Tickets are $10.00 per person.

Big Band Dance In The Park

Saturday evenings June 8 through Aug. 24, and Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013, from 7:30 p.m.–10:30 p.m., kick up your heels or sit back and relish the big-band sounds of The Hal Edwards Orchestra. For 10 years this favorite local band has filled the Chateau’s dance pavilion along the north shore with 1940s music.

Guests have thoroughly enjoyed dancing late into summer evenings in this romantic pavilion. Tickets are $10.00 per person.

For both events you’ll need a state park vehicle admission sticker. You can purchase a day sticker or annual pass as you enter the north shore of Devil’s Lake State Park, five minutes from the Inn at Wawanissee Point.

Reserve your favorite guest room at the Inn at Wawanissee Point soon. Summer weekends at the only bed and breakfast adjacent Devil’s Lake State Park are filling fast.
