WARREN — Do you like the cold? How about the Cold Rush festival?

Warren’s outdoor winter extravaganza — including free ice skating, figure skating demonstrations, food and family activities — is set to kick off at 11 a.m. Jan. 13 at City Square Park, north of 12 Mile Road and east of Van Dyke Avenue.

“We’ll have the Troy Ices Skating Team there. They’ll be putting on performances,” Warren Parks and Recreation Director Henry Bowman said. “We’ll also have a learn-to-skate program going on around 1 p.m., and there will be instructors out there helping people.”

Everything at Cold Rush is free, and the event is supported by sponsors.

The festival will also include sponsor-supported ice sculptures and a petting zoo.

“We have a nice crowd out there. It’s one of our biggest skating days,” Bowman said. “It’s a lot of fun for people, and they like going to see the ice sculptures.”

Cold Rush will run through 6 p.m., and food trucks will have refreshments available for purchase.

Daddy-daughter dance reservation deadline is Jan. 20
Bowman said Warren Parks and Recreation is also now accepting reservations for this year’s daddy-daughter dance, set for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in the City Hall atrium. Registration is limited to 300 people and must be done in advance by Jan. 20.

Tickets cost $8 per resident child and adult, and $6 for each additional person. Tickets for nonresidents cost $13 per person.

Proper attire is requested (no jeans).
