The 21st Annual Etta Steffen Memorial Ice Fest at Breezy Point will be held Jan 8 - 9, 2016 at Breezy Point Resort. Live entertainment at area eateries kicks off the fun on Friday night, with a full slate of activities on Saturday.

The main attraction of this annual event is the World Championship Ice Auger Contest, coordinated by the Pequot Lakes/Breezy Point Lions. This competition started  as a way to make Minnesota winters a little easier to bear, it has become a destination for winter lovers that actually travel great distances to compete. There are a variety of categories to compete in including hand, stock, antique, and modified.

Though the ice isn't as thick as it normally would be on Pelican Bay of Pelican Lake, there are plenty of other activities to keep kids and adults alike busy and outdoors all weekend. Click here to view the complete schedule of events.
