This is a Three Rivers Park District Event

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. Try a kick-sled, throw a snow snake and watch an ice rescue demonstration by Bloomington Fire and Rescue. Keep warm by a campfire. All activities are ongoing and will be spread out to allow for social distancing. Activities will close at the end of the program time.


Ages: All
