Fire & Ice Friday

Fire & Ice Friday presented by GEICO is Beat the Bitter’s free family night and it’s all about the fire and the ice.

Take the kids straight to Penn Meadows Park after school for horse-drawn carriage rides, ice carving, fire performances, ice skating, and more starting at 3 p.m. New for 2019, a large heated tent will provide little hands and feet the chance to warm up while taking part in crafts and activities. 

Bundle up and bring along blankets–and maybe even your sled to sit in–for our 15 minute winter fireworks show finale at 7 p.m!
