Lansing hosts Inaugural Winterfest activities

An old-fashioned ice harvest served as the unofficial kickoff for Lansing’s Inaugural Winterfest, during which ice was collected from the Mississippi River for an ice sculpting demonstration in the plaza on Main Street in Lansing Saturday, February 21 (pictured). Other activities throughout the day included a hike up Mt. Hosmer, a chili cook-off, ice fishing, snowshoeing and indoor activities. Standard photo by Bob Beach.
