We're in Minneapolis with my brother-in-law's family this weekend and went to the City of Lakes Luminary Loppet tonight. A loppet is a long-distance cross-country skiing event. This loppet featured a number of skiing and skating events on Lake Calhoun during the day and the Luminary Loppet after dark on Lake of the Isles.
