PALMERSTON - With 2018 around the corner, the Town of Minto and Minto Fire are gearing up to kick-off the celebrations with their second annual family friendly Fire and Ice New Year’s Eve event.

Highlights include: fire pits custom-made by Weathered Minto with s’more and hot chocolate stations, fire show and glow hoop performances, free skating sponsored by the Palmerston Firefighters Association, music, dog sled demonstrations and a photo booth with Kit Kat Photography.

Children and youth activities include: a glow stick station, ice sculpture building, snow painting, face painting by the Harriston Preschool as well as schlockey boards.

Food will be available for purchase in the auditorium from the Palmerston Traditional Scouting, Southside Fries Food Truck, and the concession booth.
