Mount Holly Fire & Ice Festival
I made it to the Mount Holly Fire and Ice Festival for the first time since 2007. (See 2007 photos here) Unlike last time, I arrived earlier in the day so I got to see the sculptures take shape. Another benefit of arriving earlier was that I got there in time for the chili cook-off (the fire part of Fire & Ice). I would have taken photos of that as well, but it was hard to even taste the chili because the fire house was jammed tight with people. So, I chose to taste of photograph! Another cool this this year was that there was actually snow on the ground. This means that the dog sledding demonstrations were on actual sleds instead of wheeled carts. That was cool.
