The second is the Hubbard Sleigh Festival. Hubbard, located at the south end of Long Lake, has a long history with lake people. Once it was the nearest place to buy groceries, gas, etc. for many lake residents and visitors. Now it is home to Hilltop Restaurant and Long Lake Theater. The Park Rapids Enterprise ran an article with details about the Sleigh Festival in Saturday's paper. To read the complete article use the link below.
"Hubbard will hold an old-fashioned sleigh festival along Main Street Sunday, Feb. 26. The festival honors the community’s prairie heritage and marks the return of this popular event after a hiatus of more than 10 years."
