The river may not be frozen, but the air is frigid enough to make it feel like the perfect tim for the Frozen River Festival at Falls River Square in Cuyahoga Falls.
"I think a lot of times people want to get out just to see other people and this will be the place to see them, so we're really excited about it," said Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart. "It's been a hit every year and every year it grows and I think this is going to be our biggest ever."
The festival features competitive ice carvers and an ice skating show by skaters from Kent State University, among other things, including beer and wine.
Thirsty Dog actually brewed a beer for the city of Cuyahoga Falls and it's called a bicentennial old ale," said Cuyahoga Falls Deputy Development Director Jennifer Syx. "It's something that you'll never find anywhere else because it was brewed specifically for us."
Robart says the idea to have a mainly outdoor festival that was conceptualized a few years ago.
The festival runs Friday 6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M., Saturday 2:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. and Sunday 1:00 - 5:00.
