Nothing can kick off the Christmas holiday better than taking time to enjoy the annual Fire & Ice Festival in Brodhead with carriage rides, lighted parade, memory tree Fire And Ice lighting and Friday night luminarias the first full weekend of December. Pretty lights and seasonal music greet you as you find bargains and that special something for the people on your shopping list. Fire is on the Square to keep you warm and to roast hot dogs, or marshmallows for s’mores. Ice provides great entertainment as it is transformed with a chainsaw into glistening, incredible ice sculptures! Prepare to be amazed!
