Warm up temps didn’t stop the winter fun

sleigh rides
Triple D Ranch provided winter sleigh rides at the Higgins Lake Winterfest.

REGION- Even though temperatures hit the upper 40’s recently, the winter activities in the area still went on as planned.

The Higgins Lake Winterfest went on without a hitch. Families had a great day sledding, making snowmen, enjoying the kids activities and watching some action filled broomball games.

Bellies were full of the pancake breakfast and the chili cookoff.

This community event had a great turnout.

The Ice Jam took place on Long Lake and had quite a crowd. There were some areas of the ice to be mindful of, but overall it was a success.

The Polar Plunge event was monitored by local firefighters and proceeds went to the Iosco County Humane Society.

There was a fishing derby, side x side parade, ice hockey, and most importantly people just generally having a great time in the snow and sunshine.
