85th Sister Bay Ice Out Contest Underway

When The Goat on a Boat floats it means the ice has gone out in Sister Bay. Until then there’s time to guess the date and time the ice will go out.

Vote in 85th Annual Ice Out Contest at all participating Sister Bay businesses. Support local businesses and get multiple chances to win great prizes. Vote as often as you’d like and don’t forget to look for the Goat on a Boat just off the dock east of the marina office, or keep an eye on the goat and the sunset on the Sister Bay Sunset Cam at

The $100 Grand Prize goes to the person who guesses the closest date and time to the actual time the goat floats.
