The cold weather is here to stay in New Jersey, and while you always have the choice to stay warm and toasty at home and hibernate till spring, we believe that getting out of the house and attending a festival that is fun and exciting is a fantastic way to make the season a little bit more memorable.
You are going to want to make it out to Burlington County in western New Jersey as soon as possible for an incredible ice festival that will be held there.
The annual Fire and Ice Festival in Mount Holly have become a tradition, and this year will mark the occasion’s 30th iteration.
Due to the fact that the event was unable to take place in the previous year, attendees can anticipate that the 2023 edition will be bigger and better than ever before.
In order to celebrate the town’s rich history, the streets of Mount Holly’s historic district will be adorned with dozens of beautiful ice sculptures.
Take a seat, pour yourself a mug of warm cocoa, and get ready to be wowed as beautiful works of art are carved out of blocks of ice right in front of your very eyes.
This event will also play host to an exciting chili cookoff, during which professional chefs will compete against one another to see who makes the best chili in all of Burlington County.
When it comes to the fire part of the festival, this event often boasts an impressive display of fire dancers who always put on an excellent show for the crowd.
