                   The planning is getting underway and includes the prospect of spreading out the Winterfest activities from the High School to the Community Events Pavilion on Brown Street downtown. Indeed, the event has gotten so large that its effective presentation will require additional location venues. Ice Sculptures, Chili Cook-off, Craft Show, a Friday night Fun Run, S'mores, ….all combined to highlight January in Grass Lake, when it’s really cold and snowy, but you’d still like to have something to do. Hopefully, it will actually be cold and snowy this year!!

               The Chili Cook-off/Winter Festival will come together as the committee plans all of the above activities to center around the High School site and provide a range of happenings. Looking back to last winter, and the early start to this winter, is there any doubt that can’t be accomplished? The committee doesn’t think so and are moving ahead with the arrangements for blocks of ice to be placed around the site that is selected with a sculpturing exercise by semi-pro artists from around the area. The new location will include a warming station for the ice sculpturing event as well as the location for the Chili Cook-off where chili cooks will compete for your tasting favorite prizes.

               If you’d like to help pull the whole thing together, then contact Todd Raehtz at 734-260-6387. We are excited that the Copper Nail will be our Main Event Sponsor!

Either way, the cook-off and the festival will be held on Friday night January 19th in downtown Grass Lake, and Saturday, January 20th, 2018, at the High School.
