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!
