Qualicum Beach's Fire and Ice event will be back on Saturday, May 3 in 2014 with more food & entertainment choices than ever.
The event will continue its longstanding "fire and ice" theme, but in addition to the traditional chili tasting other kinds of hot foods will be available. Visitors will be able to choose from both chili cups as well as other "hot" food options from local restaurants.
The popular ice carving will return, with additional "ice" activities such as ice cream making and new "ice" food options.
On the entertainment side, local musicians will continue to be highlighted, while the overall event will reintroduce a theme concept to inspire costumes and ice carving. The theme for 2014 will be "Pirates of Qualicum Beach".
