For Immediate Release
Fire and Ice Winter Celebration Tonight, Friday, February 18, at Crandall Park Pond Canceled Due To Weather
(February 18, 2022, Glens Falls, NY) The City of Glens Falls announced today that the Fire & Ice Winter Celebration at the Crandall Park ice skating pond scheduled for tonight Friday, February, 18, has been canceled because of unseasonably warm weather, heavy rain Thursday and unsafe conditions due to excessive standing water on the ice.
Depending on the resumption of cold temperatures, the Fire & Ice Celebration will take place from 6pm to 9pm on Friday, February, 25.
As was scheduled, the ice will be specially lighted for ice skating, with six bonfires tended by volunteers situated around the pond for celebrants to warm themselves between skating and other events. Music will be provided by area DJ Peter Wilhelm for skating to the music and dancing. Wilhelm will also host the event. Hot chocolate will be served. In order to promote sustainability, participants are asked to bring their own mugs, as well as their own ice skates and chairs.
Mayor Collins wants to especially thank Garden Time for their donation of a warming hut.
The Fire & Ice Celebration will be free. Limited parking is available in the park- volunteers will be directing cars- and on Glen Street. The City is asking that small children be accompanied by adults and that all skaters practice reasonable COVID-19 social distancing and masking.
