Celebrating 11 years of Winter Fun

Cold weather did not scare the hardy Minnesotans who came out to enjoy the many activities of Arctic Fever! The Joey Nova's Pizza Party and Sculpture Garden were a huge hit! Numbers were down for Saturday events due to the below zero wind chills, but there were still plenty on hand to enjoy the day. Watch for pictures and plans for 2017!

Check updates to times and events! There have been some changes--additions and subtractions!

Snow Sculpting

. It doesn't look easy, but it really is! Anyone can make a sculpture. It's great for families, groups of friends, youth groups, businesses, or community organizations.
Give it a try in 2017! If there is no snow, plan to create a winer scarcrow.
Great prizes and no entry fee!
