Somerset Fire and Ice Festival Begins

The 26th Annual “Fire and Ice” Festival in Somerset began this Weekend. Organizers there told us how they’re planning to keep visitors safe during the Pandemic. While the Fire and Ice Festival in Somerset is a little different this year because of the Pandemic, organizers say it’s still the same amount of fun for families and friends.

The Fire and Ice Festival has been attracting visitors to the Somerset area for 26 years, but organizers say because of COVID-19, this year they’re now calling it a “Showcase” with a focus on keeping the activities outdoors. Regina Coughenour, Executive Director of Somerset Inc says this year the Showcase is more self-guided and to-go style.

Visitors can grab a map and check out their 44 ice sculptures, each of them sponsored by local businesses with a special theme. Coughenour says they’re still having the bonfires, food trucks, scavenger hunts, and a new kids story stroll, but the fireworks have been cancelled. Visitors can come check out these sculptures until the ice melts.
