The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, with presenting sponsor Bethany Beach Ocean Suites, will celebrate the 4th Annual Fire and Ice Festival in February, a family-friendly winter event showcasing brilliant ice sculptures and supporting the local business community.
This year’s Delmarvalous theme will highlight the area’s pristine natural attractions and unique blend of small-town charm with first-class shopping, dining and culture.
The event will look different this year, as all federal, state, and local mandates in regard to COVID-19 will be followed.
The festival will officially kick off from 1 to 5 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 21, at Bethany Beach Ocean Suites with the Fire and Ice Delmarvalous Drink Competition, showcasing locally owned Steel Blu Vodka and Sagamore Spirit. Local bartenders will compete to be named the Delmarvalous drink champion. All festival proceeds will benefit Nemours duPont Pediatrics and Senior Care, Sussex Campus.
Festival events continue Friday to Sunday, Feb. 26 to 28, throughout the Quiet Resorts region. Activities will be available for enjoyment throughout the day, and ice sculptures will be lit up at night. A live sculpture demonstration will take place at Bethany Beach Ocean Suites with ice vendor Ice Lab from Baltimore. The weekend’s events will benefit local nonprofits and organizations, with the main beneficiary being Nemours duPont Pediatrics and SeniorCare, Sussex Campus.
