IWLA Minnesota Division
Experience the adventures of Minnesota’s hardy ice harvesters. Cut blocks of ice out of the pond with a vintage ice saw and pull an antique ice plow. Weigh blocks of ice, use chipping tools, and make ice cubes. Discover food preservation techniques with costumed interpreters from The Landing and hear stories from ice harvesting historians, Tim Graf and Dale Eggert. Try a kicksled, determine water quality, and watch ice rescue demonstrations by Bloomington Fire and Rescue. Keep warm by a campfire outside or enjoy hot cocoa and a film of early-1900s ice harvesting inside. Drop in anytime between 11 AM-3 PM.
