The Fire and Ice Festival is an annual winter tradition in Warsaw and the highlight of the season. The event features locally sponsored ice carvings by a group of area ice carvers. Attendees may spend the day watching these talented artists create entirely one-of-a-kind works of art out of enormous blocks of ice. Each carving then becomes part of a beautiful exhibit of talent throughout the downtown area, and an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the surrounding businesses that sponsored the ice carvings. The event is part of Warsaw's First Friday events, which provide exciting, arts-focused events to educate and inspire Warsaw residents.
