Brookfield-area residents experience a (cold) blast from the past, thanks to the Brookfield Ice Harvest & WinterFest. The centerpiece of this 41st annual frozen fête is a demonstration of 1800s-style ice harvesting, replete with period tools and techniques. Feeling adventurous? Attendees can even cut and haul their own blocks. After the harvest, folks warm up with athletic activities such as skating, cross-country skiing, sledding and pond hockey, as well as chili, hot chocolate and baked treats sold to benefit Brookfield Elementary School enrichment programs.
