With less than a week to go there is still time to plan your New Year’s weekend in Door County. Most of the restaurants in Egg Harbor are open for the weekend not to mention the boutiques and shops. Most stores are having amazing sales. Although Egg Harbor Lodge is closed for the season, The Landing, The Ashbrooke, Bay Point Inn, The Landmark and Newport Resort among others are open for business. There are lots of New Years Eve packages including one at Mike’s Port Pub in Jacksonport with room, dinner and drinks all for $175 per couple. Check out 106.9 The Lodge Activity Board for details on all the activities and specials.
JR Jarosh’s famous Jacksonport Polar Bear Plunge gets underway promptly at noon at the beach in Jacksonport. If you haven’t done the plunge before this could be your year as the weather will likely be in the 30’s… but then again this is Door County and the weather could change in minutes.
But the main event IMHO will be Frosty Fest right here in Egg Harbor. The parade begins at 1 pm at the Catholic church and heads north and turns right at Casey’s. After that I don’t know where it goes because we head to Egg Harbor Lodge to park our own float. This is our Wisconsin Badger themed hot tub float from last year…
Real classy with our cans of Bud Lite. After the float there is a one mile fun run. And for the low, low registration price of 15 bucks you also get a pair of Frosty Fest gloves!! Too cute…
We also will have ice sculptures throughout the village, The Egg Harbor Lions Club will be selling brats and you can get yourself a Bloody Mary at Mojo Rosa’s outdoor bar.
We won’t have our annual Hot Tub Girls float this year but look for us to have some kind of festive float. We have a plan but we don’t assemble it until we get to the church parking lot so it’s kind of a hit or miss type gig. Most of the time we think it’s pretty good but sometimes the wind blows the living heck out of it.
After the parade we will head downtown to watch the rest of the Packer game. GO PACK!!!
But most of all from all of us Egg Harbor Lodge we wish you and yours a happy and healthy 2012!
