The Fire & Ice Winter Celebration at the Crandall Park ice skating pond has been canceled this Friday, February, 4, due to inclement weather and poor ice conditions.
The Fire & Ice Celebration will continue from 6pm to 9pm every subsequent Friday in February: February 11, 18 and 25. As was scheduled, the ice will be specially lighted for ice skating, with six bonfires tended by volunteers situated around the pond for celebrants to warm themselves between skating and other events. Music will be provided by area DJ Peter Wilhelm for skating to the music and dancing. Wilhelm will also host the event. Hot chocolate will be served. In order to promote sustainability, participants are asked to bring their own mugs, as well as their own ice skates and chairs. The Fire & Ice Celebration will be free. Limited parking is available in the park- volunteers will be directing cars- and on Glen Street. The City is asking that small children be accompanied by adults and that all skaters practice reasonable COVID-19 social distancing and masking.
