GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — After initially being postponed due to concerns over the thickness of the ice on Crandall Pond, the Fire & Ice event will kick off on Friday. According to city officials, the ice has been deemed safe enough for skating.

The free event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. There will be two bonfires, music provided by DJ Peter Wilhelm, and a warming hut made available by Garden Time and Glens Falls Motors. Hot chocolate will also be served free of charge.

Parking will be limited to the lots at Crandall Pond and Glen Street. Participants must bring their own skates, and all children are required to be accompanied by their parents. Organizers will continue to monitor ice conditions over the next week with hopes to continue Fire & Ice next Friday.
