For this year’s Brant Lake Winterfest, more than $1,000 has been raised to date for everyone’s favorite event: Out House Races. All area business are invited to enter!
More about the Winterfest from the Tri-Lake Business Alliance:
The Downhill Derby is scheduled for February 14th and we’d like to have more events throughout the week (it’s winter-break vacation week) so anyone with ideas let us know. We need more teams for Snow Shoe Softball and the Broom Ball Tournaments so any groups interested please let us know! In addition to the Fry Pan Toss, Curling, Out House Races, Children’s sledding hill and Ice Bowling we’ll also be having an Icicle Contest (bring your longest icicle!) with Adult & Children winners.
Also new this year is a competition amongst local business and/or groups to get the most votes for their nominated King & Queen. $1 a vote and the most votes win bragging rights and a crown -- so vote for your favorite King & Queen at local establishments and/or organizations!
