Ironwood Township — This year’s annual and appropriately titled Frost Fest was held at the Ironwood Township Hall gymnasium on Saturday. The heavy snow and wintry weather didn’t stop vendors and locals from attending.

The event brought in crafters from around the U.P. to come and showcase their home-made products.

There was an array of items available for purchase at the event. Everything from jewelry to bird feeders, mittens to barbie dresses were on display.

Ironwood local Sammy Jo Thomason was at the event selling Younique beauty products. “I’ve come here for a few years now and it’s always worthwhile,” said Thomason.

The Ironwood Township Farmers Market had a booth at the event offering information, locally made honey, healthy recipes and homemade cookies to attendees.

Joe Rohde, of Ironwood Township sold his home-made woodcrafts at the event. He offers a variety of products including, bird and squirrel feeders, toddler stools, coat racks, magazine totes, and much more. Rohde does custom orders as well. “Kids love the stools for reaching things or using as a chair.” said Rohde.

Many of the vendors offered live demonstrations of their goods as well as drawings for free samples.

There was a variety of snacks and beverages available for attendees.
