This event began as a way to remind visitors and locals of all the free activities the town offers at Fern Park in the winter.
The pavilion becomes an indoor skating rink with a warming room and heated restrooms and a section at the base of the mountain was cleared many years ago for a daring little sledding hill.
Fern Park is also the trailhead to miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and trails for snowshoeing.
Feb. 23 is also the day of the Third Annual Cardboard Sled Race, starting at 1 p.m. at Fern Park. Go to www.FrozenFireandLights.com for a schedule of the day’s activities and a printable Cardboard Sled Race application.
