Ice Dogs brings the thrill of the dog sled sledding to River Place Shops

  Frankenmuth River Place Shops is bringing the heat to Snowfest with Ice Dogs Mushing Shows, free and exciting demonstrations of dog sledding and other-winter related activities. From January 29 to 31, guests can watch the Ice Dogs perform on the east side of the shopping complex located at 925 S. Main Street in Frankenmuth. Shows take place near the Cass River Bar and Grill and are free to attend; social distancing and mask usage is encouraged.

  Shows are at 6pm and 8pm on Friday, January 29 and at 1pm., 3pm and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, January 30 and 31. Public sled dog rides are not offered.

  Each show will include demonstrations of multiple dog sled team sprints, weight pull and skijoring. The show’s finale is two teams with two dogs each, sprinting for the best of three races to be declared the victor.

  “We are thrilled to welcome the Ice Dogs and to continue our family and dog-friendly programming at River Place Shops,” said Jessica Haynes, marketing and event director. “These activities perfectly complement Snowfest and provide families with a fun and educational experience while visiting Frankenmuth.”

  Ice Dogs is presented by Classic K9s and sponsored by Frankenmuth Dog Bowl, the world’s largest Olympic-style festival for dogs that takes place annually over Memorial Day Weekend at River Place Shops.

  The shows have been organized as part of Dog Bowl’s nonprofit mission to highlight the bond between dogs and humans.

  River Place Shops requires all guests to wear a mask to enter any enclosed spaces at the shopping complex or throughout Frankenmuth. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the complex, along with indoor and outdoor bathrooms.
