fire & ice Festival
112 SE Williams Avenue
Saturday, February 2, 2019, 5:30-8pm
Fire & Ice takes place at Luxton Park, typically the first Saturday in February. This event brings together residents young and old to enjoy a family-friendly evening of fun. The event's signature draw is a huge bonfire made up of dried-up Christmas trees and wreaths, but the food, live music and horse-drawn hayrides are certainly of interest as well! Luxton Park will now pick up Christmas trees from the neighborhood (January 9th and 23rd, 2019).
Begun in 1995, Fire & Ice originated from civic-minded Prospect Park residents as a result of the neighborhood involvement projects encouraged through the city's NRP program. Over the years Fire & Ice has been held in sub-zero and mild weather, in deep snow and on dry ground.
The tradition is to have a safely monitored bonfire by enforcing the limit on flame height along with the Minneapolis fire marshal and the Park Police, who are invited to attend.
