The 11thd Annual Main Street Vermilion Ice-A-Fair is a day-long winter event for the entire family filled with glistening sculptures, ice carving demos and more! Easily walkable or tour by Lolly the Trolley for $2 a rider or $5 for a family. You'll find more than 30 shops, restaurants and pubs open to welcome visitors. You're certain to bump into Jolly the Snowman and Pete the Penguin on the street as you enjoy your day in downtown Vermilion.

Add a visit to Ritter Public Library to experience Friends of Library Chocolate Festival from 10AM-1PM. Sample chocolate confections to your heart's content for 50 cents a taste. Come early because this popular and delicious event always sells out.

Stop in at Main Street Vermilion throughout the day to warm up with refreshments and take a chance on an exciting array of raffle baskets.

The day's events end at 6PM with a towering display of Fire & Ice in the center of town at Exchange Park. Enjoy this beautiful mix of music, flames and ice that constantly shifts in shape and texture. Will the fire outlast the ice or will the ice quell the fire? You'll be the first to find out!

Afterwards, everyone is invited to the "Meltdown" after party, 7PM at the Vermilion Boat Club. For $25 a person, enjoy music, hors doeurves and a cash bar. Relax around the fireplace and a great view of the river. Tickets are on sale at Main Street Vermilion or online ($25 + $1.06 processing fee).
