Fire and Ice Festival

Ice Carving, Chili cookoff, Street Fair. It's the annual Fire and Ice Festival in Mt. Holly.

Join us and photograph ice carvers as they shape large blocks of ice into beautiful sculptures (or small ice cubes).

The event runs from 10:30-4 (carving normally done by 2), so even if you can't hook up with the group at the start time, you can still come out on your own and shoot (but still look for us... we'll be the ones with lots of cameras).

The schedule...

10:30 Ice Carving Starts

Noon Chili Tasting

2-4 Something new, a Chili Crawl in Mill Race Village

Let's meet on the corner of Commerce and High St., outside The Daily Grind (48 Street). Dress warm, this is a mostly outdoor event.

    Have a car down for brakes, and hope to get it back tomorrow, but a long trip to get back so I won't make.

      Sorry to hear that bob. The cold was really pushing our cameras pretty hard.

    Cold but fun. Some new faces and did I mention it was cold. They say if it hurts it's going to be good. I think I got some images that would not be possible unless I braved the cold. For those that made it I want to congratulate you for not letting a little weather stop you. Hope you all got some super shots.
