Icy Otterdazzle still delivers

Ottertail’s annual winter festival, Otterdazzle, didn’t fail to delight families on Saturday, despite having to cancel some outdoor activities due to frigid, below-zero temperatures. 

Hay rides and fireworks went on as planned, but the event’s always-popular Parade of Lights was a no-go. 

Indoor activities, held at the Ottertail Community Center, included Bingo, a chili cook-off, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus, vendor sales, below, raffle drawings, a Dazzle Walk with lots of prize giveaways, and more.
