11th Annual ShiverFest
DEVILS LAKE, ND. – It’s time again to celebrate our annual winter event – ShiverFest! The dates this year will be February 18-20, 2011. Friday kicks off with the Mikal Wakefield Memorial Hockey Tournament at our two arenas (which will continue all weekend) and a Quilt Show at Quilt Essential.
Saturday, Ackerman Acres will offer for the second year, an Ice RallyCross, starting at 11:15 am and the high flying, large kites from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. Out on the lake by Woodland Resort, you can find sleigh rides, snowshoe races, a golf course out on the ice, and more. Starting at 1:00 pm is the annual Youth Ice Fishing Tournament. Again this year, there will be trophies for the largest fish, a drawing to win an ice fishing starter kit, Devils Lake Chamber Bucks prize awards for the top 8 finishers in the Northern, Walleye and Perch categories. The entry fee is $10 and you can purchase tickets at the fire station, the Devils Lake Chamber of Commerce or on the ice the day of the tournament. The first 100 youth signed up for the tournament will receive an ice fishing rod, tackle and a tackle box. Concessions will also be available on Creel Bay (served by the Ice Fishing Tournament) on Saturday from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.
An adult and high school pond hockey tournament will round out the weekend at Woodland Resort. There is a maximum of 50 three-man teams. Later in the evening, a Fireworks display will start at dark and The Cove (at Woodland Resort) will feature a band to rock the night away.
Also going on around town is a Motorcycle Show at the Holiday Mall along with woodcarving demonstrations. A Gun Show will take place at the Memorial Building, and the Quilt Show at Quilt Essential.
