Ice, ice, baby!

Another quirky Winter Carnival event is the Spike of Ice Icicle Contest in which contestants transport naturally formed icicles to compete for the longest intact icicle, and includes a children and adult division.

The contest is sponsored by Woltner Summit Contracting, and a home-energy audit will be awarded to the longest residential icicle in the adult division. Medals will be awarded for first and second place in the adult division as well as first and second place in the child division.

See the Schedule Page for this year's Day and Time.
