The 52nd annual Iola Winter Carnival was held this past weekend with a number of events for people to take part in, including a Norwegian Lutefisk Supper and Indoor Craft Sale, an ice sculpting contest and the new Iola Twilight Snowshoe Race on Saturday. On Sunday, events included a cross-country race and a Central USSA Ski Jumping event were held at the Iola Ski Jumping Complex.

Several people donated their time to help with the Norwegian Lutefisk Supper where they helped cook and serve up about 700 pounds of lutefisk. The meal also featured some 300 pounds of meatballs, 500 pounds of potatoes and 150 dozen varieties of sweets among other dishes.

Ice sculpture contest organizer Marsha Mueller said there were six entries this year, with the winning sculpture being a giraffe.
