The Lake Superior Ice Festival is a family-friendly fun event coordinated by the community.  Our vision is to attract people of all ages and abilities to share in Superior’s passion for all things winter and come together to celebrate the coolest aspects of our City.

Lake Superior Ice Festival Trivia Contest!

The Lake Superior Ice Festival will feature 24 businesses and non-profits that have sponsored custom ice carvings by Krystal Kleer Ice Carvers.  Each custom carving will be displayed on a blue base.  Attached to every blue base will be a unique trivia question - you must go to each sculpture to see the question.  Beginning Friday, January 28th at 5 pm, visit every location to check out the carvings and read the trivia questions.  Come back to this website to enter your answers to the trivia.  There will be two winners. For every correct answer, you will be entered for a random drawing for a chance to win one a package - worth a total value over $600!


Submit your answers through Friday, February 11, 2022, at Midnight.  Winners will be announced on our Facebook & Instagram page on Monday, February 14, 2022.

You are also welcome to bring your favorite sled to race your friends down the multiple tracks on the Superior Snow Slide.
