#4 Blue Ridge Ga Winter Experience

Have Some Fun! Fire & Ice Chili Cookof and Ice Sculpting Event

Come on up to the Georgia mountains for the President's Day long weekend and have some fun at downtown Blue Ridge's Fire & Ice Chili Cookoff and Ice Sculpting event.  The weather is going to be gorgeous -- in the 60's, just warm enough for outdoor adventures during the day and just cool enough for a warm fire and a good book at night.

Saturday, February 18th from Noon to 5PM it's hot and cool fun during the Fire and Ice event: Amazing ice sculptures all over town and in the Downtown City Park, and live carving demonstrations by master ice sculptors. Heat up with the Chili Cookoff where you can sample the hot stuff from dozens of local chefs and aspiring chili cooks from Noon to 4PM.

Live music from 1PM to 4PM, food, shopping and even an ice skating rink set up in the City of Blue Ridge Park. Sponsored by the Blue Ridge Business Association. Get more info: click here and on their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/fireandicechilicookoff

Anne Frank and Me
Blue Ridge Community Theater
2591 E. First Street (Directly across from The Swan Drive-In Sign)
A Sunny D Children's Theater Production that should not be missed! This multiple national award-winning American classic is about the awakening of a modern teen Holocaust denier. Nicole Burns doubts the truth and cares even less, but ultimately comes face to face with the hell of the Holocaust, and--in an extraordinary sequence--meets Anne Frank on a cattle car to Auschwitz. We start out with Nicole in today's teen world of MTV, hip-hop dancing, unfinished homework and young love, which is transported with her to 1942 occupied Paris and then brought forward again to the light and hope of present time.
Blue Ridge Community Theater.  Call 706-632-9223.
