Head Lake Ice Out contest

Published March 19, 2019

While it might not feel like it now, warmer weather is right around the corner. Along with the arrival of spring comes the Haliburton Echo’s annual Head Lake Ice Out contest. 

We’re asking everyone to send in their best guess of when precisely the last lump of ice will dissolve into Haliburton’s Head Lake. 

Send the date and time you think it will happen along with your name and contact number before the end of the day on Sunday, March 31 in order to qualify. You can send in your guess via email to letters@haliburtonpress.com, by phone at 705-457-1037 or in person to 146 Highland Street

(drop it through the letter slot if we’re not open). 


The person whose guess is closest to the time of the ice melt will win a one-year subscription to the Haliburton Echo. 

Good luck!
