Celebrating 13 years of Winter Fun

It's Arctic Fever season and we are hoping for lots of snow! We don't care if it's a little cold, we know how to celebrate winter in Minnesota! Get ready!!

2019: Cold but Fun!

Although some events were canceled due to lack of snow, there was still plenty to do at Arctic Fever 2019. The ice sculpture at the community center is still standing, the tlit trail walk was beautiful, and the lucky ones who completed the short walk had treats at the end.

Saturday expereienced very cold temps, but many hardy souls showed up to snuggle with the llamas, sit around the bonfire, hit the ice, enjoy a sleigh ride, visit the Hennepin County Sheriff's K9, or ride a fat tire bike in the Erik's bike race. THere was so much more.

Reserve January 17-19, 2020, and remind yourself that you survived the #PolarVortex2019, so there is no reason not to go outside and have fun during Arctic Fever 2020!
