'Ice Ribbon' in UP Town is Another Way to Enjoy Winter
You don’t have to be an Olympic speedskater to glide along an icy loop in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
The city of Houghton has created a skating path at Kestner Park.
Five laps around the “ice ribbon” equal about a mile.
Brad Barnett of the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau said it's another way to enjoy winter in the U.P.
The ice was created by flooding a paved path.
Officials were inspired to do something after seeing the popularity of a frozen canal between Houghton and Hancock in December.
Skaters, hockey players and the curious flocked to the ice.
