On Jan. 30, the search for the lost medallion begins. Three clues will be posted, one each day, at participating businesses, the Crosslake Chamber Welcome Center and at www.crosslake.com. The person who finds the medallion — hidden someplace in Crosslake — qualifies for a prize package worth hundreds.

On Jan. 31, there will be a beer and wine tasting at Barstock Liquor; a carnival for kids at Crosslake Community School; a wine tasting at Andy’s Bar & Grill and Wine & Spirits; a number of all-ages activities at the Crosslake Community Center; and night-time entertainment at Pine Peaks Event Center, The Wharf, Manhattan Beach Lodge and Moonlite Bay Family Restaurant & Bar.

On Feb. 1, highlights include a pancake breakfast, helicopter rides, SoupFest and radar runs.
