Fire and Ice Winter Celebration at Crandall Park Pond Rescheduled
(March 2, 2022, Glens Falls, NY) Glens Falls Mayor Bill Collins announced today that the Fire & Ice Winter Celebration at the Crandall Park ice skating pond will be rescheduled for this Friday, March 4th, thanks to the return of seasonal cold temperatures. The celebration was originally scheduled to take place on each Friday in February but was canceled due to adverse weather conditions.
As was originally planned, the rescheduled Fire & Ice Celebration will run from 6pm to 9pm. Volunteers are needed again. Third Ward Councilmember Diana Palmer, who originated the event two years ago, is asking for volunteers to sign-up again at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4AA5A92BAAF49-fire This link will also be live on the city website on the spotlight section and the City’s Instagram page. Potential volunteers are asked to sign up as soon as possible.
The ice will be specially lighted for ice skating, with six bonfires around the pond for celebrants to warm themselves between skating and other events. Garden Time has also generously donated a warming hut for participants. 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. Participants are asked to bring their own mugs, as well as their own ice skates and chairs.
The Fire & Ice Celebration is free. Limited parking is available in the park 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.
