Luminary Loppet Event

The Luminary Loppet is a breathtaking event around Lake of the Isles. Participants xc ski, snowshoe or walk around the lake and have the opportunity to stop at the various beautiful features along the way - candlelit ice luminaries perfectly spaced around the lake, the Ice Pyramid, Fire Dancers, the Enchanted Forest, Ice-Cropolis, Ice-Henge, and more. Participants also receive cocoa and treats throughout the event as well as a free Surly beer (for ages 21+ with a valid ID) at the REI Co-op Luminary Loppet Party. The REI Luminary Party will be held at the bottom of the Mall near the Isles-Calhoun Lagoon (just north of Lagoon on Knox Avenue/Calhoun Parkway). The REI Co-op Luminary Party is free for registered Luminary Loppet participants and $10 as an individual ticket. The Luminary Loppet runs from 6pm-9pm and you will register for a specific time slot.
