Huge snow tubing and winter festival north of Toronto is back next month

Fire & Ice Festival in Bracebridge is coming back next month and ready to celebrate winter.

The annual one day festival is a carnival-style street party held downtown, and gets its name from combining performances and events revolving around fire and ice.

This includes fire dancers and fireworks for the "fire", and ice skating and ice sculpture carvings for the "ice".

The town also shuts down Manitoba Street and hauls in 50 truckloads of extra snow to create massive tubing lanes for attendees to slide down the hill.

On this year's itinerary, the festival will include axe throwing, a rhythmic drum circle, outdoor bowling, a lumberjack show, and more.

There are also a myriad of indoor events to break up the cold, such as a pancake breakfast, cupcake decorating, and arts and crafts.

Fire & Ice returns this year on Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Admission is $10 for anyone over 13, $5 for ages 6 - 12, and free for children under 5.
