With car racing, snowmobile drags, and motorcycle and quad races, this is a family event with lots to see and do throughout the whole weekend. The Lac La Biche high-speed event is now set to take place on the frozen lake as it has in the past as temperatures have created sufficient ice for safe racing.

Take advantage of winter. Plan your Lac La Biche County adventure...
