About the 2024 Festival

Join Clean Lakes Alliance for Frozen Assets 2024! The family-friendly festival at The Edgewater helps connect the community with the lake through free winter activities.

The day will start with Frozen Assets’ Winter Workout on the Grand Plaza. Registration includes a super soft t-shirt compliments of Lands’ End and a post-workout beverage. Kids 10 and under can participate for free with a registered adult.

Each year, this FUNraiser, FRIENDraiser, and FUNDraiser highlights the year-round value of our lakes, while raising money to protect our waters through lake improvement projects, educational programming, and our volunteer water quality monitoring program.

Clean Lakes Alliance hopes community members and visiting guests can interact with our “frozen assets” and appreciate their importance, even in the middle of the winter.
