Race into Town for a Weekend of Family Fun and Snowmobile Racing
Gather your family. Grab your winter coat, mittens and hat. Put on a warm pair of socks and your winter boots. Load the family in the car and head to Caro for a weekend of family fun and heart-pounding excitement at the Caro 150 Winter Fest and Snowmobile Races January 17-19, 2014.
The event kicks off Friday night with a downtown open house featuring a magician, roaming musicians, ice carving demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon rides, Snowmobiles on Main Street (these will be the actual race machines), community-wide shopping and restaurant specials, and more.
On Saturday and Sunday the fun moves to the Tuscola County Fairgrounds where you’ll find a warming tent with entertainment, a variety of wintertime contests, door prizes, swap meet and chainsaw carving competition, and much more. Food and other goodies are available for purchase in the tent as well. And you never know who you might find wandering around; such as, the Caro 150 Winter Fest mascot – Penelope the Penguin! Kids can enjoy hanging out and getting their pictures taken with Penelope.
Your heart will skip a beat or two as you sit on the edge of your seat in the grandstands watching the racers fly around the track. Saturday’s races feature Sprint pro, semi-pro and junior, and Vintage. On Sunday, the Kitty Kat races take place early followed by the 150 mile Enduro race. Before the big race, though, you can mingle with the racers and get up close to the snowmobiles at a meet-n-greet on the track. The professional snowmobile racing is overseen by Midwest International Racing Association (MIRA) and includes teams from all over the state and beyond. Interested racers can find out more at www.miraracing.com.
Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the gate. Admission is $10 for a 1-day ticket or $15 for a weekend pass. Children 12 years old and under get in free with a paid adult admission.
