Big Freeze Medallion

The Big Freeze takes place this weekend. The winter festival is a collection of many events mostly on Saturday — food, fishing, snowmobiling, live music, disc golf, polar plunge, snowshoeing and skydiving. A Texas hold ‘em tournament takes place Friday. Each event is listed in the Tribune calendar.

However, the Big Freeze fun started Sunday with a medallion hunt. Local artist Eloise Adams made the medallion. The finder receives $450 in Chamber Bucks. Clues will be printed and now start appearing online, too.

Rule out Albert Lea Lake;

Rule out Pickerel, Goose and Chapeau.

Fountain is the lake we float on,

This park has a boat launch, don’t ya know?


Go for walk short or long

And take your son and daughter.

The Big Freeze medallion

Is in a park that borders water.


No birds will be disturbed this year

No wrens, sparrows or meadowlarks.

But you will find the medallion

Hidden in one of Albert Lea’s 42 parks.
