Enjoy wintertime fun at Leavenworth ice fest

The Bavarian Ice Fest is Jan. 15-16 in Leavenworth.

Festivities include a smooshing contest, musical entertainment, dog sled pulling contests, chili and salmon cook-offs, as well as other winter time fun events.

The smooshing contest will be held on Front Street and consists of four-person teams who strap 8-foot-long boards to their feet and try to maneuver and glide down the street tandem-style.

The day long festival is free. For more information, go to
