Spend the day at Frankenmuth’s very own “German Themed” outdoor shopping mall


The Frankenmuth Lion’s Club started a unique fund raising project back in 2015 to benefit The Special Needs Vision Clinic at the Millet Learning Center in our area.

Once the Cass River freezes over, a full sized Shanty will be placed on the ice between the Frankenmuth River Place Shops and the Covered Bridge Leather Shop.  The Frankenmuth Lion’s Club sells ticket guesses as to when the ice shanty will sink.  The person who most closely guesses the actual time of the sinking wins $1,000!  A $5.00 donation gets a person one ticket/one guess or a $10 donation gets three tickets/three guesses.  Tickets are available to purchase at Frankenmuth Jellystone Park, Edwards Jones (corner of S. Franklin & Genesee Streets).

Thanks to the generous support of numerous community sponsors, all costs of this project have been covered and ALL PROCEEDS will benefit The Vision Clinic.

You can check the status of the shanty 24 hours a day with our handy webcam!
