“The Fire and Ice Festival will bring fun, art, and creativity to the coldest and snowiest time of the year with an outdoor extravaganza for all ages to enjoy . . . be part of the tradition!”

—Promotional Language for the first Festival of Fire & Ice on February 9, 2013

Yesterday, Ithaca Children's Garden's Festival of Fire & Ice welcomed over 800 visitors, featuring activities led by NYS Park Educators on winter wildlife adaptations and Primitive Pursuits with an engaging friction fire activity. The Arctic Animal Parade, orchestrated by LilyPad Puppet Theatre, marched through the Garden, culminating with a dance in the Village Green. The evening was brought to a spectacular close with a fire performance by local artists Sam and Briar, capturing the awe of the crowd.

One ICG educator reflected, “I’ve never seen so many people in the Garden,” amazed at the turnout.
