      Ice Harvest Festival

      Come enjoy a day of hands-on history and winter fun. Ice harvests were once an essential part of winter in rural communities. Before there was refrigeration, ice was needed to keep food cold in the warmer months. Each year on the first Saturday of February, Hanford Mills Museum celebrates this rural tradition with the Ice Harvest Festival. Using historic tools and techniques, visitors can cut and maneuver blocks of ice from the Mill Pond, and then transport the blocks to the ice house by sled. The Ice Harvest Festival also features ice sculpting and ice fishing, a hot soup buffet, bonfires, and exhibits by local farmers and businesses.

      Cost: Payment required - Adults, $9. Seniors and AAA members, $7. Kids 12 and under get in free.
