A winter festival that will give you a reason to celebrate the snow and ice is returning for its ninth year in downtown Rochester.
The Fire and Ice Festival will be held Jan. 22-24, 2016, and features ice sculptures, carriage rides and favorite winter activities like ice skating and snowshoeing. Guests will also enjoy a little reminder of summertime with the nightly fireworks on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Located at East Third and Water streets in downtown Rochester, the three-day festival will also offer food truck vendors, marshmallow roasting, an ice carving competition on Saturday, dog sled demonstrations and rides, tube sled runs and more.
You’ll also have the opportunity to add a furry friend to your family at the Oakland County Pet Adoption Tent, where dog adoptions will be offered on Saturday and Sunday.

- Friday: 5-9 p.m.
- Saturday: 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
