About This Site
Hanson's Amusement Park replaced the Picnic Grounds, offering life-long memories for generations of Lake visitors.
Local favorites, the Star Fires and Joe Nardone and the All Stars, lit up the second-floor dance hall at Hanson's in the 1960s and 70s.
The last major entertainment venue on the Picnic Grounds and Hanson's site was the 1980s Bud Light ampitheatre, which attracted major national acts.
