GOSHEN, Ind. (WNDU) - The City of Goshen hosted its annual Fire and Ice Festival Saturday afternoon.

Eleven ice carvers turned 45 blocks of ice into unique sculptures all throughout downtown, and three different fire dancer groups showed off their skills.

“Our carvers have had so many events canceled this year, so we’re so excited to have them here and to be able to still have the event...To see their talent, the fire breathing, the fire swallowing, the twirling, all kinds of different techniques of dancing with fire,” said Director of Events Adrienne Nesbitt.

With the nice weather and ability to spread out, Nesbitt said it was a perfect way to spend the day.

“It’s a great, safe, family-friendly thing to do to come and walk around and see these art pieces and enjoy the day,” said Nesbitt.

Geof Landis, owner of Menno Travel Service, is a sponsor of the festival and each year he picks a travel-related sculpture.

“This year we have the Eifel Tower. I wish we could send people to Paris right now. You can go to New Paris, of course, it’s just down the street, but not the real Paris at this point,” he said.

If you missed the festival this year, there is always next year.
