Several vehicles parked on Lake Geneva during Winterfest broke through the ice and became partially submerged. A few vehicles were able to drive away before the ice broke, but several were unable to be saved. Recovery crews were called in to pull out the remaining vehicles. Large crowds gathered on shore and on the frozen lake to watch the spectacle. No injuries or deaths were reported.
