Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A longtime winter tradition in Rochester has been scrubbed.

Like other cancellations in recent months, blame it on the pandemic.

The Rochester 76 Lions Club has announced its Youth Ice Fishing Contest won’t be held this year because of “the Covid situation.”

It had been scheduled for Feb 13 at Foster Arend Park for youth 15 and younger.

This would have been the 23rd year the service club held the event.
