The ARCTIC SPLASH has arrived! We are a brand new non-profit organization, aimed at helping to bring our Long Lake, St Francis, Cambridge and Isanti communities together. Captain’s Lakeside Grille will play host to a fun filled weekend in February, hoping to raise money for local organizations such as our veterans, Special Olympics, food banks, fire, police/rescue units and more! (The actual beneficiaries will be listed on our website)
On February 9, SPLASH organizers will kick off the three day ARCTIC FEST with a Chili feed and pre-registration party. The evening will include a gun raffle, and live music! Be sure to pick up your limited edition ARCTIC SPLASH sweatshirt while they last! Saturday, February 10, the party moves out on to Long Lake where you will find entertainment, Helicopter rides, food trucks, a VIP Igloo, photo booth, Gun Raffles and so much more! At 11 am, the Englund family will perform the old fashioned ice cutting ceremony. At 1:00 Ray Erick from radio station KQRS will be here live, to host actual ARCTIC JUMP and costume contest. The event will kick off with a special performance of Hallelujah and the National Anthem by Sailor Jerri while the VFW honor guard and Polaris Sea Cadets do a patriotic salute to the flag. After the jump, hang tight while local firefighters face off against local Police officers in a polar powered tug of war, over the hole in the ice! Come back to captains for raffles, prize drawings, awards and live music! If you have little ones who want to join the festivities, bring them out Sunday when they can take part in the Itty,Bitty Kiddie Splash hosted by Betty Danger and Boogie the dancing penguin.
We hope that you will come out and support this very special celebration of fun, friendship and community. Get involved, volunteer or come and jump! We need sponsors and prizes to raffle and give away. The ARCTIC SPLASH needs you! For more info, check out our web page at www.arcticsplash.org.
