LONG LAKE - Come take part in one of Long Lake's most famous winter events on Saturday, Jan. 15. The festivities kick off at noon with a snowmobile parade, the coronation of the winter carnival king and queen, and the cardboard box sledding races. Other events include one shot basketball, ridiculous relay race, kids' money balloon chase, golf drive, broom ball tournament and the infamous ladies frying pan toss. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners. Look for fireworks at dusk over Mt. Sabattis. Free sledding and ice skating are available throughout the day, as are warm beverages, food, and restrooms. The Little Bus is slated to run from 6 - 11 p.m. to get folks to fireworks and out to dinner at our area restaurants. The perfect cure for the winter blues.
