The Knickerbocker Ice Festival Cometh!

Published On: Wednesday, January 26, 2011By Categories: BlogTags: , , , , , ,




The first weekend in February is always a blast of cold air and fun times in Lake Mills. From the Knickerbocker Trivia Contest on Friday night to the myriad daytime activities inside and out on Saturday, this annual festival brings area residents and eager visitors alike out into the cold Wisconsin winter to have a great time and celebrate all that our coldest season has to offer.

The weekend kicks off with a friendly rivalry on the Trivia Court Friday night. Every topic is game for this event, and teams of 6-8 players compete for prizes, a trophy and bragging rights. Saturday brings ice sculptures, and the Iceberg Open Golf Tournament and Ice Fisheree, both on the frozen waters of Rock Lake. Enjoy the Sno Ball eating contest, frozen fish toss and the IdiderDAD race in Commons Park. The frozen fish toss is like an old-fashioned egg toss, with teams of two tossing the fish back and forth across an ever-widening space. Drop the fish, and you are disqualified. The IdiderDAD race harnasses dads to sleds, with a kid of their choice on board.

Don’t miss the wildly popular Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off at Carp’s Landing on Saturday. There are prizes for the white, green and red chili categories. The only thing better than entering a prize-winning chili is being a judge – and everyone who participates in taste-testing the chilis becomes a well-fed judge.

A special Main Street Event Menu will feature Knickerbocker food and drink items at the local restaurants, and many of the retailers will have special promotions for ice festival attendees.

For more information, go to Legendary Lake Mills.

See you in Lake Mills on February 4th and 5th!
