Meltdown Winter Ice Festival!!!!



It has begun! The Richmond Meltdown Winter Ice Festival is underway!

If you have yet to partake in the Meltdown, you don’t know what you’re missing!  The ice sculpting has begun as well as some of the fun activities! This FREE event is January 26-31 with winter adventures in the Downtown and Depot areas like the Family Fun Zone with Ice Ping Pong, an Ice Slide and, in the past, Ice Corn Hole.



Warm up at Paint the Towne and paint your own souvenir then head to Veach’s Toy Station for Game Day activities. There’s a Scavenger Hunt, Frozen Fairy Trail, Freeze Your Buns Off Fun Run, Pub Crawl and Cork & Canvas for the “big kids.” 😉 No matter where you walk, you’ll be enjoying the Ice Sculpture Tour, beautiful works of art throughout the Downtown and Depot District.







DO NOT MISS THE ICE FIGHTS! 1, because they’re awesome fun! 2, because we will be there both Friday and Saturday selling our Max’s Truck Stop Chili, Vegetarian Chili, Hot Dogs & Chili Dogs, of course.
