Wednesday Walk - Luminaries on the Lake - Actifit Report: February 12 2020

in actifit •  2 months ago  (edited)

We recently attended the annual Loppet Festival in Minneapolis. Note that Minneapolis is known as the City of Lakes, and that this time of year they are all frozen.

At the festival there are all kinds of events and contests involving snowshoes, cross county skis and fat tire bikes, all of which take place on one of the lakes. But we didn’t go during the day for those events. We went at night, when the entire circumference of Lake of the Isles is dotted with luminaries made of ice.

It was absolutely stunning. This is a huge lake. And as far as the eye could see there were lights every few feet along the edge of the lake.

People were walking, skiing and snowshoeing all around the edge in a beautiful parade and everyone was in great spirits because the weather was mild — just below freezing — which is really quite comfortable. There were also all kinds of attractions!

Like fire dancers...

And Stone Henge, made of ice...

And a beer tent!

I have never seen an event like that how unique and interesting thanks for sharing with us and joining Wednesday walk :)

Thank you, @tattoodjay. I realized after posting that I forget to tag you. Thank you for finding the post. Yes it was a spectacular event with beautiful sights. And thousands of people walking on the lake!

I use Ginabot to notify me of all Wednesday Walk posts :) so no prom or tagging me

Ah, that makes sense. Or of course you can just click the tag in a post. But still I always like to mention you since you’re the mastermind of the WednesdayWalk project. 😁

Thanks that is appreciated have a great weekend

That is really cool @jayna! I bet it's spectacular in person! Good job with your 8648 @actifit steps today. I'm glad you shared this with us. Have a wonderful night!

It really is. I hope the weather is that great again for the festival next year. It’s so fun to be out when the weather isn’t terribly cold.

@jayna that looks like it would be a very fun festival. I might even leave a warm house to take it in if I lived closer. I really like the ice carvings with the candles inset.

Thank you! Yes, it’s worth it to be a little cold for an event like that! (But we were dressed for it, so we weren’t cold!)

It is really attractive and impressive that festival in such a special space. It must have been an enriching visual and thermal experience (!). Those "lamps" made of ice are something unique. Beautiful photographs. Thanks for sharing, @jayna.

Thank you for your nice comment, @josemalavem! They have the festival every year but is usually so cold I don’t want to go. This year the weather was perfect!
