Winter in Minnesota means that don’t we just stay inside, we bundle up and enjoy some great events. The Winter Ice Festival takes place this Sunday, January 8th at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina. We attended this event a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, our favorite part was riding on the horse drawn wagon. Ice Skating at Centennial Lakes is picture perfect and another highlight of this event. Hours for the festival are 1-5pm.
In celebration of the winter season, Centennial Lakes Park will host the 27th-annual Winter Ice Festival. Visitors to the park will be able to have their faces painted and ride on a horse-drawn wagon. Ice Festival participants may bring their own equipment, but ice skates and kick-sleds are available to rent at the Hughes Pavilion, which serves as a warming house and concessions stand during the winter months. Behind Hughes Pavilion on the terrace overlooking the lake, ice-sculpting demonstrations will be given.
