Cool trivia contest heats up in Superior
Visit all 24 ice sculptures and answer questions online for a chance to win $100 in Superior BID bucks. The contest runs through Feb. 14.
SUPERIOR — The 2023 Lake Superior Ice Festival left a challenge in its wake.
Two dozen ice sculptures wait to be discovered throughout Superior. Each one poses a question. Whoever answers the most questions correctly will be entered in a random drawing for one of two $100 Superior BID Bucks certificates. The trivia contest runs through Feb. 14.
“It’s a fun way to support the businesses that sponsored a custom ice carving,” said Linda Cadotte, director of parks, recreation and forestry for the city. “The carvings are beautiful works of art and the artists that make them are so incredibly talented — why would anyone not want to see each work of art in person? It also gives people something to do — a little trivia/scavenger hunt of sorts — during a time of year when it’s easy to stay cooped up at home. While they are out and about, they may discover a new business or the location of a business that they may not have been aware of.”
Only 24 carvings are created each year. New this winter are sculptures at Empire Coffee, Kari Toyota, Keyport Liquor and Lounge and Superior Savings Bank. The city also sponsored carvings at a few new locations: Barker’s Island Marina and Nemadji Golf Course.
This year’s sculptures run the gamut, from a (literally) frozen computer at discoverpc.NET and a cheesehead penguin at the Spirit Room to a scene straight from Disney’s “Lady and the Tramp” at VIP Pizza.
