October 27th from 2pm-4pm
The 70th March Down Market Street
Every MLK weekend marks the return of FestivICE presented by York Traditions Bank. FestivICE is York's cold-defying winter ice festival. In its 4th season in Downtown York, FestivICE is partnering with Children's Aid Society to further its mission of helping children and their families build stronger, healthier lives.
FestivICE packs over 20,000 pounds of interactive ice and even more entertainment into three days of fun. We're talking about fire pits for roasting s'mores while chillaxin' on the adirondack chairs, checking out the music and ice art in Cherry Lane Park, dancing with the FestivICE Yeti to the "Yeti Stomp", and sending the kids down the FREE 40' ice slide.
