The zaniest of all spring events, Pond Skimming on March 28th challenges skiers and snowboarders to try to skim across an ice water filled pond at the bottom of Yodeler. Some will make it all the way across, but many end up getting very wet (and cold!). Prizes are awarded for the best skimmer, the best costume, the best kid and of course the most spectacular splash.
Ellicottville is turning 200! To celebrate their Bicentennial, the Historical Society and Museum, and local establishments have planned the following events! Follow the Historical Society on Facebook for fun facts, photos and more!
