Fire & Ice Festival Goes on With or Without Snow

The Fire & Ice Festival in Rochester is on for January 18-20, no matter what the weather, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson announced today during a news conference. The Fire & Ice Committee, Oakland County Parks & Recreation, City of Rochester, and Downtown Rochester will bring in a zip line and other warmer weather activities if temperatures remain above freezing. Mainstay activities such as fireworks, ice sculptures, dog sled rides, the Big, Bright Light Show, TasteFest, and more will round out the events.

“The show will go on because of the foresight and planning of our Fire & Ice partners,” Patterson said. “The weather does not change our mission to offer families an opportunity to get out and get active during the winter months at one of Southeast Michigan’s premier quality of life events.”

The Fire & Ice Festival welcomes new musical entertainment this year. Rochester College’s acapella group Autumn will perform both nights before the fireworks. Also new this year, attendees will be able to play the game cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, along with a variety of other activities at the Fire & Ice Festival. Patterson also announced that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will participate in The Brooksie Way Chill at the Mills 5K race.
