Event Description:
 Have fun in the New Year! Plan on attending the 16th annual Ice Fest in Breezy Point
If your New Year’s resolution is to take more time to enjoy life with friends and family, the perfect way to kick off 2011 is at Ice Fest in Breezy Point, hosted by the Brainerd Lakes Chamber.
The wide range of activities – from a Youth and Adult Pond Hockey Tournament , World Championship Ice Auger Competition to sleigh rides – planned Jan. 7-9 at Breezy Point Resort on Pelican Lake provides fun for people of all ages.
Major sponsors this year are the Pequot Lakes-Breezy Point Lions Club, StrikeMaster Ice Augers and Grand Casino Mille Lacs.
There’s much more new this year to the Breezy Point Ice Fest! Additional events added this year include a vendor/craft fair; free dogsled rides; and kite racing. The vendor/craft fair will be hosted inside the Marina II Lakeside Ballroom. Charlotte Wolf, of Wolf Moon Kennel and Dogsled Rides in Brainerd, will provide the free dogsled rides. And Bryce Johnson will organize a group of kite racers who will travel around Gooseberry Island on Pelican Lake as long as the wind cooperates!
Other components of the Breezy Point Ice Fest tradition include daily bonfires, fireworks, food and beverage tents, live entertainment at Breezy Point restaurants, horse-drawn sleigh rides, children’s activities, Pequot Lakes-Breezy Point Lions World Championship Ice Auger Competition and much more!
Specials are available at participating Breezy Point businesses for those wearing an Ice Fest Blinkie Button, which are available at a cost of $5 at area businesses, Breezy Point City Hall and the Brainerd Lakes Chamber office in Pequot Lakes.
