It’s back - come on out to the 3rd Annual Fire & Ice Winter Festival March 3rd at the Ness Creek Site.

Enjoy the ski trails during the Nordic Ness Loppet, try your hand at snow sculpting, and experience a new view of winter on a sleigh ride! When you start to get chilly come warm up next to a bonfire or join in on a jamming session when you want to rest your feet after all the winter games. We even get to set off fireworks and you can bring your own too!

As the sun goes down, prepare for Melting Man; a Tree Doug creation!!!
