Long Lake Fire Department Serves Lunch

The Long Lake Winter Carnival was held on Saturday, January 19, 2019 despite the predictions of all things, SNOW!  Events were held throughout the day at Mt. Sabattis, located off of S80, aka The Power Line Trail for snowmobiliers. Events were slated for noon and continued throughout the day until the fireworks finale at 6:30pm. 

Families and friends gathered around four bonfires, wood generously donated by Donnelly’s Logging and fires also started by Tom Donnelly. Thanks Tom.  The Ice Farm was on site installing three sculptures including an ice sculpture selfie board, the Long Lake Little Bus and a sculpture of a hammer, sponsored by new construction business, Howe May We Help You, llc.  

Events kicked off with a snowmobile parade, coronation of King and Queen, Erik Arsenault and Kate O’Dowd.  There was a wacky hat competition and then the real centerpiece of the afternoon, the Cardboard Sled Races.  A variety of sleds were created from a tropical island theme, to a butterfly with wings, the Long Lake Little Bus and even a sled that has competed in the last FIVE sled races.  That box is well preserved!  

Special Thanks to snowmobilers who traveled to Long Lake on our groomed snowmobile trail system and stopped by our local businesses.  We’re open 7 days a week all winter!  Stop on bye! 

Other events throughout the day included the one-shot hockey, Ladies Frying Pan Toss and the Men’s Caber Toss.  Special thank yous to our prize donators including: Moonlighter’s Snowmobile Club, Long Lake Diner, Long Lake Fire Department and the Town of Long Lake.
