LAKE GENEVA, Wisc. — This is why you don’t park on the lake.

Several cars took the plunge – literally – in Lake Geneva after falling through the lake during the city’s annual Winterfest.

The cars were all parked on the ice for the big event when they started to fall through the ice, says Lake Geneva Fire Department.

No one was in the cars at the time and all the cars have now been pulled out of the water, although some suffered water damage in the engine and in interiors of their cars.

Many of the melting pics were posted on Twitter.
