Kent Ice Watch' set to go on the Housatonic River
Area residents may make guesses as to when the ice will break on the Housatonic River, just south of the Kent village center. The 28th annual contest is a chief fundraiser for the
Kent Volunteer Fire Department
Tickets at $2 per guess are available at many Kent-area stores and businesses.
Winners have received as much as $3,650. Proceeds are split with the fire department.
The clock keeping watch on the tripod on the river will start clicking tonight at midnight. The latest ice break during the contest's history was March 23 in 1993. For information, call (860) 927-4119.
