Annual Community Campfire and Concert: New Amphitheater!

     Saturday, September 8th -- the annual Friends of Pike Lake Community Campfire and Concert.  

It’s free, it’s fun, it’s an outdoor treat for people of all ages: the annual Friends of Pike Lake Community and Campfire and concert on Saturday, September 8th at 6:00 pm.  The event’s most popular entertainer, Randy Peterson, will perform in the Pike Lake Unit’s new amphitheater located just up the hill from the old location.  If it rains, the concert will move to the nearby shelter. The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is located at 3544 Kettle Moraine Road, Hartford, Wisconsin.  It is just south of Highway 60 between Hartford and Slinger.

  Attendees can find the new amphitheater just northeast of the beach parking lot . . . follow the candles that will light the path.  The amphitheater has its own seating with overflow lawn seating just above.  Members of the Northern Cross Science Foundation will be on hand with their telescopes to give visitors a chance to view stars and planets through (   The event is free, though a state park sticker (annual or daily, available that evening) is required for parking. 

Along with his many live concerts, Randy Peterson often appears on television and radio programs.  His concerts are fast-paced, featuring humor and storytelling.  Children participate throughout his shows, which he likes to call “sing-along, clap-along, laugh-along concerts . . . which all ages will enjoy”.

Readers of Northeast Wisconsin Kids Magazine voted Randy "Favorite Children’s Performer" many times, and the Green Bay Press Gazette Best of the Bay reader’s poll voted him "Best Musician".   Peterson's CD "Picture Day!" received the iParenting Media Award, given to children’s products deemed “the best in the industry” by iParenting Media, a division of the Walt Disney Company.  Randy also received the prestigious national Parents’ Choice Award twice.
