Just in time for this weekend's cold weather, the Fire and Ice Festival will light up The Wharf.

Revel in this weekend's chilly temps at the D.C. Wharf's Fire and Ice Festival. Bring the whole family out to cheer on the Caps, play some cornhole, and get some whiskey to warm you up. If you're looking for a show, check out the ice sculptor or head to the main stage for DJ sets and fire dancers.

With a sponsor like Proper No. Twelve, you know you're in for a delicious time. Visitors over 21 are welcome to purchase tasting tickets to sample some of the best local and craft whiskeys around. Are you more into bourbon? They'll have plenty on hand!
