19th annual Breezy Point IceFest
Web posted January 7, 2014
The 19th Annual Etta Steffan Memorial Icefest was successful despite a few events being cancelled the day of the event. Hundreds of visitors enjoyed sunshine and above zero temperatures on Pelican Lake on Jan. 4.
Ten hockey teams took part in the annual Pond Hockey tournament and many enjoyed ice golf, horse drawn carriage rides, kids’ icefishing event, pancake breakfast at the Pelican Lakes Conservation Club and and bonfire during the afternoon. Missing this year due to a lack of thick enough ice were the popular snowmobile radar runs and the World Power Auger Championships.
