What you should know about boating for Rhythm & Booms

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) --- With Lake Monona being the backdrop for this year's Rhythm & Booms, officials expect boat traffic to be heavy on Saturday.

The Marine and Trail Enforcement deputies offers these tops for a safe event:

- Lake Monona will be Slow No Wake from noon to midnight on Saturday.

- The Olin Park boat landing will be closed, however, Olbrich and all other landings will be open.

- Plan ahead by checking lights and other equipment to insure that they operate after dark.

- Expect delays at landings and the locks. Be courteous and patient!

- Make sure everyone on the boat has a personal floatation device.

- Non-motorized boats must carry a white light strong enough to be seen by other boats from a distance of two miles.

- Boaters are encouraged to use a designated, sober driver.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office will have three patrol boats on Lake Monona as well as on Lake Mendota and Waubesa.
