Fire and Ice fills Front Street
FARMINGTON - Saturday marked the third annual Fire and Ice Festival, delayed one week after frigid temperatures on the original scheduled day.

Franklin Savings Bank operated a tube park on the hill from The Roost parking lot to Front Street, sponsored by Collins Enterprises and E.L. Vining & Son while others had the option of sledding behind the movie theater, sponsored by Big Sky Drive In & Grill.
Up on Broadway, Devaney Doak & Garrett Booksellers hosted a book title scavenger hunt. Front Street Mercantile sponsored a cookie decorating station and Divine Inspirations hosted a snowman making station.
Horse-drawn wagon rides ran throughout the day from the Better Living Center to Giffords.
