Ely Winter Festival

Close to Home visited the Ely Winter Festival to talk with some of the snow carvers on a frigid day.

Each week Timberjay editor Marshall Helmberger tells us about the stories they've been covering.  This week, besides an update on the Bois Forte band, the US Forest Service change in a study on lands where copper nickel mining is proposed, the Ely Winter Festival and gray foxes showing up far more north then they usually do.

Molly Olson from the Ely Folk School told us about some fantastic opportunities happening this month at the school and she also told us about the Winter Festival that runs from now thru February 11th in Ely.  Slovenian Ravioli, egg writing, rug knotting, beginner carpentry and even a class on tracking animals in the snow are just a few of the options the Ely Folk School has put together this month.  Check out their website for a full calendar.
