Emergency crews were pulling vehicles out out the water Saturday after several cars fell through the ice at Lake Geneva's Winterfest.
 
Around two dozen vehicles parked on the ice became partially submerged in the water during the judging of the the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition.
 
As of 6 p.m., the Lake Geneva Fire Department was working to remove seven vehicles from the water using a tow truck. No one was in the vehicles when the ice broke. 
 
Parking is scarce in the area, so officials allowed people to park on the ice.
