Every February they have the Ice Harvest. Blacksmith friends and I staff the Blacksmith Shop during the event. This year we will be making hinges, and working on axes.
Hundreds of visitors help cut ice blocks and haul them out of the water. Then wooden work sleds are used to haul them to the Ice House. They are stored in the Ice House for use in the summer.
So, if you want to have fun and experience an ice harvest, go to Hanford Mills Feb. 6th after 10 am.
