January 24th, 2015
It’s the first year that I can remember the weather being good for the Fire & Ice Festival in Downtown Rochester. Every year, either it’s too warm and we have to move it, or it’s too cold for anyone to come out. This year… It’s about perfect.
If you’re not sure what the Festival is, let me just sum it up… Outdoor activities. It’s a phenomenal family event, that is centered around enjoying Michigan’s winter activities. There’s a tube run down 3rd Street, and ice skating rink, dog sledding (be sure to pet those sweet puppies for me!), a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and building s’mores, ice sculptures, and so much more. And the best part? There’s no admission charge!!
Oh, but wait… it gets better. Because the weather is SO good, and because I have the most wonderful team in the world, we’re going to be OPEN ON SUNDAY, January 25th! That’s right – you can come down, enjoy the festivities, AND visit your favorite yarn shop on SUNDAY. We’ll be opening the doors at 10am and will remain open until 3pm. We hope you’ll stop in and say hello, tell us all about your downtown adventures, warm up, and see all the exciting new yarns that haven’t even been announced in the newsletter yet. Woo-hoo! So much fun!
Don’t want to try to park downtown? That’s ok, too. Head over to Buffalo Wild Wings at Livernois and Walton. There’s a free shuttle that’ll bring you straight downtown. It runs in a continuous loop, so you won’t have to wait too long. The bus starts running at 10am.
