For forty years of rafting, opening weekend of spring season has always been called “the ice breaker.” Join us as we celebrate this unique culture. The Fire and Ice Festival will showcase a variety of ice displays carved by professionals from all over the world, live music, food and more! In a spectacular grand finale, a Fire and Ice Tower will be set ablaze in the evening. The symbolic melting of the ice will become the highlight of the party and the start of 2019 season.
