Lake City Ice Climbing Festival
In early February Lake City’s Ice Park will once again have their Ice Climbing Festival. There will be men’s and women’s categories and other levels for participants to conquer. There will also be awesome prizes in store for the best climbs which will be given at the award ceremony that follows immediately after the event.This festival is the brainchild of Lake City Ice Climbs, Inc. which is a non-profit organization that aims to provide a unique climbing experience at the Lake City Ice Park. Because they are a volunteer-based organization, this kind of festival aims to gather donations to help keep the park going.
For those who will be traveling to participate in the event, there are some sponsors like from last year that offers discounts in hotel accommodations. There are also small bars and restaurants where people can hang out and have a drink before or after joining in the event.
