~Little Falls, Minnesota~
~WHEN TO GO~
This year’s I.C.E Fest is January 11-12 on Green Prairie Fish Lake. Canada recently took hold of the World Record with an ice carousel that was 688 feet wide. Which is nearly a half mile around! The crew behind I.C.E. Fest has a huge new record to beat. Fingers crossed they bring the trophy back home with this year’s attempt!
~GETTING OUT ONTO THE ICE~
The Ice Carousel is pretty impressive in itself, but there’s more to do at I.C.E. Fest then just watch the world spin by. Try your hand in one of the curling, ice hockey, or ice skating events. There are also snowmobile rides.
~DOING IT ALL FOR A CAUSE~
The Fest is free, but visitors are encouraged to join in on the fundraiser to feed kids who live in households under the poverty line. The event is on year three and has raised over $15,000 so far to feed children. The Flyer Pride Pack program sends kids home from school with a bag of nutritious, kid-friendly meals for the weekend.
~EXPLORING LITTLE FALLS~
Little Falls is a fun spot up North! Travelers can warm up at the local brewery, explore the quaint shops downtown, or take a tour of some historic mansions. Little Falls is home to beautiful bed and breakfasts along with lake resorts and standard hotels. There’s some great dining choices too, including one recognized as “Restaurant of the Year” by the Minnesota Restaurant Association.
