Duluth Winter Frolic, February 18, 1927

Friday, February 18, 1927, was a bitterly cold day, so Speed Day races were postponed until the next day. On Saturday, an estimated 15,000 paid fifty cents (twenty-five cents for children) to view horse races, speed skating, and motorcycle ski-joring on a half-mile track on the lake ice off Lake Shore Park. A 9:00 p.m. dance at the Armory was the final event of the week.
