FARMINGTON - A bright, sunny day greeted festival goers Saturday at the 7th Annual Fire and Ice Festival held on Front Street in Farmington. Preparations began earlier in the week with crew members from E.L. Vining & Son constructing the favorited Franklin Savings Bank Tube Park.

The event brought many of the regular activities, including the Tube Park, horse drawn wagon rides and free movies at Narrow Gauge Cinemas, plus several new additions such as a snow sculpting contest and a magic show.

  1. I was so glad with the turn out. The kids as well as adults had tons of fun. The fireworks were very good. Thank you to everyone that made this a success this year!

  2. The fireworks were awesome! A suggestion for next year....if toasting marshmellows, please have some sticks available for the kids. There were only two that I could see. The dog sled rides were a big hit...however, we waited more than an hour in line and were turned away just as we got to the front of the line. I understand the dogs were tired, but wish someone had given us a heads up that they were going to stop giving rides at 3:00, even though the schedule said until 4:30. Like I said, understandable, but was disappointing. I do want to thank all those who volunteered for the festival, as it a great community activity, especially for the kids :)
