Ice on Fire! our Celebration of Deep Winter is not happening in its traditional form this year, but the City of Montpelier’s Parks staff and AllTogetherNow! are offering an alternative way for friends and families to enjoy the magic of Winter.

During the week of school break, February 20-March 2, the community is invited to visit the Montpelier Recreation Field and enjoy walking a tree maze, sledding on the hillside luge, help build a snow person village and enjoy a StoryWalk. The field will be decorated with banners and paths will be maintained for you to walk amongst it all to enjoy with your family and friends.

On Friday, February 26, from 2-5 pm, Parks and AllTogetherNow! folks will provide a warming fire in the Snow village.  You can help build the Ice on Fire Village, Tuesday and Friday, February 15 & 19, 9 - 12 am at the Montpelier Recreation Field. Enter at the pool/tennis court entrance.

The Recreation Field is also an access to the many North Branch nature trails. We ask that you maintain social distancing and mask-wearing. Please No Dogs in the Tree Maze and clean up after them.

You can make a contribution to support Ice on Fire on the website's donate button. Make a note that it is for Ice on Fire.
