Watch the City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Minneapolis hosts the City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival (Feb. 3-5), but you should know that non-skiers will find plenty to enjoy about this festival, too. There’s a snow sculpture contest, fireworks and a beer garden for spectators to enjoy. Skiers will find multiple events to participate in, from the 25K speedskating loppet, the Minne-Loppet for kids and Chuck & Don’s Skijoring Loppet, which lets canines get in on the skiing fun, too. The festival ends with plenty of awards, some of which come with cash prizes.
