Ergodyne Supports World Record Ice Carousel Attempt



Ice Fest

St. Paul, Minn. (February 11, 2021) Ergodyne announced sponsorship of the 4th Annual I.C.E Fest, February 13-14 in Little Falls, Minnesota. 

This year’s I.C.E. Fest will showcase the Zwilling family’s attempt to break their own record for the World’s Largest Ice Carousel, a 749-foot (10.1 acre) behemoth created in 2020. Chuck Zwilling started the event in 2018 as a memorial to his father, Sunny, who owned a sawmill in Sauk Rapids. 

“All our siblings, including the girls, know how to run a chainsaw. So when I saw this ice carousel thing, I threw the idea out there and they all said, ‘Ok, let’s do it,” Zwilling told SC Times. 

These days, the Guinness World Records attraction plays host to all sorts of family fun—including a skating rink, ice fishing, log rolling and more. And, perhaps most importantly, it’s all for charity. Zwilling’s event raises money for the family’s 501c(3) nonprofit, the Pay It Forward Foundation. 2021 proceeds will go to the Flyer Pride Pack and Kare Kloset—two local organizations focused on providing food and resources to children in need. 

Ergodyne is a gold sponsor of this year’s I.C.E. Fest, having outfitted Zwilling and his team with a variety of Tenacious Work Gear™ to keep them safe as they carve and haul literal tons of ice in preparation for the weekend’s festivities.

“We’re incredibly excited to be able to support Chuck and his team,” said Tom Votel, Ergodyne President & CEO. “Not only is the event an incredible display of tenacity and determination, it’s all done in the name of a good cause.” 

I.C.E. Fest 2021 will be held February 13-14, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Green Prairie Fish Lake (12636 Forest Road, Little Falls, MN 56345). The event is free and open to the public with donations encouraged.
