Undeniably the unique winter event in New York’s Thousand Islands region, Fire & Ice, the riverfront Ice Bar extravaganza at the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, will return for its second annual event, Feb. 18-20.
Expected to exceed last year’s attendance of more than 1,000 guests who embraced winter’s brisk chill for an unforgettable winter experience, Fire & Ice will feature more than 20,000 pounds of artfully carved ice sculptures, including martini ice luges, with the St. Lawrence River as the backdrop.
The three-day Fire & Ice event will run from 5-9 p.m. each night at the AAA Four Diamond-rated 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel. Its riverfront patio will be completely transformed into a bar made entirely of ice, featuring grandiose sculptures, ice benches for seating and unforgettable photos, an ice wall featuring event sponsors and an ice sculpture demonstration.
In addition to four signature cocktails, including 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel’s Classic Martini, guests can enjoy a cash bar, light hors d’oeuvres, and chili and pulled pork bites prepared by Executive Chef Patrick Leibacher.
Admission is $20 and includes small bites, beer and wine samples, fireworks and DJ entertainment. Fire pits will be available for warming up and guests can also retreat to the hotel’s ballroom for wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres.
