The Brant Lake Winter Carnival turns the work of a small number of volunteers and a modest budget into a real tourism draw and lots of family fun.  The Winter Carnival is full of many activities that everyone can participate in regardless of age.  Our first year headlined with a successful outhouse race, and was joined the second year with an exciting Ladies’ Fry Pan Toss.  If you have never seen it an Outhouse race, it features an occupied and decorated outhouse on skis that is propelled by runners at high speed down a racecourse to outrun it’s adversary.

Other activities include:

  • Curling (with the support of the Lake Placid Curling Club!)
  • Ice skating
  • Broomball
  • Hockey shootout
  • Showshoe softball
  • Vintage snowmobiles
  • Sledding
  • …and much more!

The day ends with the warmth of a bonfire and an epic fireworks display over the lake. The Carnival was put on with generous support from the Town of Horicon, donation of the facility and preparation of ice rinks by Jimbo’s Club at the Point, other private donations, and much effort by members of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance
