For several years we have made the trip to South Haven for ice breaker. There was been 50 degree tempatures and white out blizzards. You never know what you will get in February!
There is always some time for skating at the ice rink after the curling demonstrations.
And the various stores sponsor an ice sculpture that is built during the day. We have seen some incredible sculptures over the years!
The Boy Scouts are out in force with heating fires to warm up by. Others are collecting money for warm your heart heating help. If you get there early enough to get a decent parking space it can be very festive as you enjoy before the crowds.
This year they even offered a 5k for fun.
