A day-long winter event for the entire family filled with glittering sculptures and ice carving demos throughout historic downtown Vermilion. Tour the area by foot or via Lolly the Trolley ($2/person; $5/family); more than 20 shops and restaurants will be open to welcome visitors along with Jolly the Snowman and Pete the Penguin. Add a visit to Ritter Public Library to experience their popular Chocolate Festival and sample chocolate confections ($1/sample). Stop in at Main Street Vermilion to warm up with free hot chocolate, cider, and cookies and take a chance on an exciting array of raffle baskets. The event caps with a towering display of Fire & Ice, made possible with a grant from Erie County Community Foundation. You're invited to the after party Meltdown at the Vermilion Boat Club for heavy hors d'oeurves around the fireplace and a great view of the river ($25/person). Please call Main Street Vermilion to make a reservation.
