Offered by Itasca State Park and the Lake Itasca Region Pioneer Farmers.
From the MN DNR website:
"Discover the good old days of harvesting lake ice. Dress warmly as you come out on Lake Itasca to see ice harvesters use tools of the ice cutting trade. Watch them create an opening in the ice with a single handled handsaw, then breathlessly wait as they bounce the ice blocks out of the water onto the slippery edge. NOTES: This Old Time Ice Harvest demonstration will take place on Lake Itasca if ice conditions permit. Parking is available at the Lake Itasca boat landing. This event is presented by Itasca State Park and the Lake Itasca Region Pioneer Farmers."
