The Annual Whitefish Winter Carnival kicks off with the coronation of a king and queen, followed by a Penguin Plunge (a hole is cut into Whitefish Lake and participants take a dip to raise funds for charity). Visitors are welcomed by mountain men, penguins and Viking divas, otherwise known as the costume-clad volunteers who share stories and point the curious toward the old-fashioned Main Street parade, an ice sculpting contest, a kids' carnival, a pie social and a pancake breakfast. You can also expect a torchlight ski parade, ski-joring, cross-country ski races and a figure skating demonstration. The festivities are open to the public and most are free. Feb. 7-9, 2020.
