Immediately following the parade, along the parade route, will be a one-mile Icy Fun Run to benefit the Door County YMCA. An entry fee of $15 includes a pair of Frosty Fest logo gloves and hot chocolate at the finish line. To register for this family friendly run, sign-up at the Y in Sturgeon Bay or Fish Creek. Registration is also offered on January 1 from 12 – 1 pm at the start/finish line on the corner of Hwy 42 and Harbor School Road.

If there is snow, sculptures will line the sidewalks. Food and beverages will be available for purchase before, during and after the parade.

Winter Harbor Madness will take place Jan. 14 and feature an ice fishing tournament and cross-country ski race.
