It’s time to embrace the cold weather and all the fun you can have in it. The city of Warren celebrates Michigan’s winter in a big way during the Warren’s Cold Rush Ice Festival, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019.
The 12th annual festival will take place at Warren City Square across from City Hall, located just north of 12 Mile Road and east of Van Dyke Avenue.
People of all ages are invited to enjoy a wide range of free, winter fun activities including ice skating ($3/skate rental), a petting zoo, putt-putt golfing through the ice sculptures, music and more.
For boys and girls who aren’t completely steady on the ice quite yet, a free learn to skate clinic will be offered at 1 p.m. to teach kids how to ice skate.
Visitors can also watch ice sculpting in action, all sponsored by local businesses. If you need to warm up for a bit, just head to the building near the ice skating rink.
Concessions, including hot chocolate and treats, will be available for sale. Admission to Warren’s Cold Rush is $4/person or $2/seniors.
