The first Saturday in February, people from across the region bundle up and head to Hanford Mills Museum for its annual Ice Harvest Festival.  Using historic tools, children and adults can walk out on the frozen mill pond to cut and maneuver blocks of ice.  The ice blocks are pushed up a ramp and then loaded onto sleds, which are hauled to a traditional ice house.
