Celebrating winter with fire and ice at HarborFrost

We may be spoiled right now with spring-like weather, but we still have a little more than three weeks of winter left – and, for Sag Harbor, that can only mean more time to celebrate this (usually) cold season at its annual HarborFrost, held on Feb. 25. The fest highlights two extreme elements, fire and ice, featuring attractions ranging from ice carving demos to fire jugglers and fire dancers.

Events are scheduled throughout the village, from noon-6 p.m., with live music performances, as well as various indoor children’s activities, like a Meet and Greet with Disney’s “Frozen” characters Anna and Elsa (don’t be surprised if “Let it Go” gets stuck in your head). Plus, there are special ice sculptures paying tribute to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Firefighters that are on display along Main, Bay and West Water streets.

If you’re a foodie like me, don’t miss out on the Culinary Stroll, sponsored by the Sag Harbor Hysterical Society. You can sample a variety of foods throughout Sag Harbor, beginning at noon, at Baron’s Cove. What’s better than that?

At 2 p.m., the Frosty Plunge at Windmill Beach will have your teeth chattering for a cause, as all proceeds are set to benefit the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance. Registration begins at 1 p.m., in the Windmill.

At dusk, this winter celebration heats up with a performance by The Fiery Sensations, a group that dances amongst the flames of blazing swords and other accessories, and fireworks by Grucci over the Harbor.

Fire and ice and everything nice to do – what a way to celebrate the winter.
