We will be set up at a booth selling tickets for the Boat Raffle at Fyr Bal Festival in Ephraim. The grand prize for this year’s boat raffle is a handmade 16′ Merlin rowboat, DCMM’s Hull #021. She is laid out for fixed seat rowing but can be adapted to take a sliding seat rig. Build of 4mm maritime ply, she weighs a bit under 100 pounds. Like her sister, Peregrine, Merlin handles open water, boat wakes, and such easily. She can also take a small outboard or electric motor.
Ephraim explodes with summer excitement as Fyr Bal Festival (pronounced feer ball) re-creates traditions of early Norwegians celebrating Midsummer’s Eve. Artists, food, musical entertainment and family activities along the picturesque shoreline of Eagle Harbor welcome the arrival of summer. Hop on the trolley or stroll through the village and visit the many historic landmarks, shops, galleries and restaurants for which Ephraim is well-known.
A signature Fyr Bal event, evening bonfires represent the burning of the ‘Winter Witch’ and usher in the long days of summer. Fireworks complete a perfect day. Stay and enjoy the hospitality of our many lodging accommodations. Learn more about Fyr Bal Festival.
