Fire and Ice & dog sleds downtown!

Winter: It may be cold and frigid and rather lacking in snow but the end of January brought great ways to connect with outdoor adventure in Oakland County. And thanks to the efforts of the City of Rochester and Oakland County Parks one such event was the Fire and Ice Fest that brought human warmth, ice carving demonstrations  and sculpture, food, refreshment, horse drawn carriage rides, trolly tours of brightly lit streets, marshmallow roasting, fireworks, tubing on a snow packed Rochester street for the little ones  (on snow trucked in from our county airport) warming fires and my favorite event---Dog sleds!  Mark your date book now for 2011. This event is a winner and great earthy fun for  all.    For more winter events connected to Oakland County Parks check their new website:
