Great Ice in Grand Isle County
What better way to spend a cold winter day than on the ice? Yes, ice! Grand Isle County is hosting the third annual Great Ice, a month of activities centered around Lake Champlain. Bring the family and let the kids try ice fishing in the Kids’ Derby, skate to Knights Island, try a pair of Nordic ice skates, and enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride across the ice. Design your own human powered machine in the F-F-Frozen Chosen Regatta. For the golf nuts, there’s even an Ice Golf Tournament! And of course, there will be lots of food – barbecues on the ice, hot cocoa and more.
Activities are held each weekend in February on City Bay in North Hero, where there will also be a skating oval maintained for the entire month. Bring your own skates or rent a pair at Hero’s Welcome. For a full calendar of events, visit the Lake Champlain Islands Chamber of Commerce site.
