This three-day celebration of all things winter brings together a weekend of activities and fun for adults. From snow golfing to dancing on a frozen lake, there’s something for everyone at this unique festival.
Annual Frozen Flop
Friday night kicks off with the annual Frozen Flop, a version of a polar plunge that raises money for local charities.
After bravely taking the plunge, warm up at the heated Tent Party, complete with an ice bar made from actual blocks of ice! Food and live music will keep you warm throughout the night.
Saturday morning begins with the Pancake Feed back on the frozen lake, and then it’s time for Snow Golf! Test your skills as you tee off on the frozen lake and make your way around the course.
With nine holes at nine separate locations, you can be sure that you will have plenty of time to test your skills while having some serious fun. Your chance to hit a hole-in-one awaits! A golf club and a steady supply of tennis balls are provided, so don't fret about gear when packing.
The party rages on Saturday night with more great music during the Tent Party.
Sunday's Food Fest
The last day brings us to Food Fest, where you can indulge in delicious treats from local restaurants. Remember to cast your cook-off vote to boost your favorite booth.
Later that evening, the exciting grand finale lights up the night sky with fireworks over Gull Lake!
