Once again on Saturday January 25, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM downtown Mount Holly was the place to warm your tummy with great chili, see lots of icy artistic eye candy, and hear Suze & Watson play everything from show tunes to Springsteen from the Friant’s display window on High Street. Oh, did it rain? We didn’t notice. Too much family friendly fun.
On the last Saturday of January, every year now for 26 years, Mount Holly plays host to over a dozen professional ice carvers from up and down the east coast, an equal number of professional chili chefs plus a wide variety of interesting entertainment for young, old and everyone in between. The ice carvers transform 300 pound blocks of ice into beautiful crystalline works of art, right before your eyes, throughout town, beginning at 10:00 and continuing until 4:00 p.m. This annual free family friendly event makes for a great day to knock around Mount Holly. And yes, lots of photo opportunities. Post (and find) your pictures on social media with the hashtag #FandINJ.
