Fire & Ice Festival, Racine« Back to Events
The 2018 Fire & Ice Festival is a family-friendly fun event that warms up this Saturday, January 20, 2018.
Centering on Racine’s Monument Square, the Fire & Ice Festival is a free community event designed to break you out of that winter cabin fever.
Ice carvers will be on hand to wow you with their icy creations. They’ll start their work at noon and shape huge blocks of ice right before your very eyes. If you grab a selfie with the finished sculptures, feel free to post use #fireandicefest to humble-brag.
You can carve a little yourself by taking advantage of the FREE ice skating rink on the square. Free ice skate rentals will be available from noon – 5:00 pm.
Enjoy a stroll through theiur vendor area to check out fabulous handmade crafts and get to know local small business owners. Get something to eat at one of the yummy food trucks on site. Or, grab a hot cup of cocoa and warm up by a fire. Yes, you read that right! What’s a Fire and Ice Festival without the fire? It’s a bonfire, actually. After the event, shake the chill off by heading over to McAuliffe’s on the Square for some warming drinks and some live music! You can also enjoy local, craft brews just down 6th Street at Benjamin Brewing or an old-school diner burger at the Kewpee, just two blocks away.
Don’t forget dinner! January 20 kicks off Downtown Racine’s new Restaurant Week! Restaurant Week discount cards are available at the Downtown Racine Corporation office at 425 Main Street, or at any participation location.
