The annual Gun Lake Winterfest celebration is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Yankee Springs State Park.
Kicking off the day Saturday, Feb. 17, will be the firemen’s breakfast, with the Yankee Springs FD as host.
The Winterfest five-kilometer (5K) run will start at the Long Lake Outdoor Center later in the morning, but it shouldn’t be confused with the “.05 Beer Run,” which is geared to those slightly less serious about the sport.
A Little Miss Gun Lake contest will be held for little girls ages 5 to 8.
Three tents will be provided, one for vendors, one for beer tasting and our food vendors and one for the chili cookoff and disc golf putting challenge.
Of course, the ever-popular Polar Bear Dip in Gun Lake will return, with sponsorship by Amerigas.
Also part of the festival will be a 50/50 raffle sponsored by the VFW of Wayland, a magician, as well as Chris Bromley’s horse and wagon rides.
