Winter Festival highlights Three Bear Sled Dog Races and community activities

Three Bear Sled Dog Races was the main event in Land O’ Lakes on Feb. 2 for the annual Winter Festival celebration. Spectators cheered mushers as they headed onto the course while visitors shopped outside for fur hats or warmed up in the elementary school for the craft and bake sale. Youth participated in the event by entering the Bark-a-longer Race and the Mutt Race or by taking sled dog rides. Winter Festival also offered ice skating at the Snowflake Pavilion, games and music at the Mushers’ Ball.
