To kick off the 11th Annual Magical Ice Fest, Shadowland Ballroom hosted the 5th Annual Fire & Ice Party on Friday, February 6, 2015. Doors opened at 8 p.m. with a $10 cover, but ladies were free to get in until 9 p.m. Entertainment for the night included live music from Joshua and Jeremy Sprague, fire performers from The Barefoot Hawaiian, Neil Sauter on stilts making balloon hats, Ben Pancoast’s photo booth and a martini ice luge. Two of our sponsors, Silver Beach Pizza and Zick’s Specialty Meats provided delicious snacks for guests to munch on throughout the night.

Shadowland concocted many tempting cocktails located at their three bars for the evening. The tiki bar featured house made Margaritas and Raspberry Sangria. For the martini ice luge there was Coconut Creamsicles, 10945842_1076768345681951_4645186033458711881_oFlame Throwers, and Mai Thais to tantalize the taste buds. Also, thanks to Zick’s Specialty Meats we featured Micheladas, a spin off a 10945866_1076768445681941_1160672447292264686_oBloody Mary using beer instead of vodka. The Micheladas were garnished with a fire Zick stick to accent the spice. Shadowland’s main bar also featured Flaming Dr. Peppers and Fireball to warm up the evening.

The turnout was record breaking with over 500 guests being able to come out on the mild February night. One of the numerous highlights of the night was the two Hawaiian fire performances drawing huge crowds to watch their shows. We want to thank our sponsors The Boulevard Inn and Bistro, Blossomland Accounting LLC, Silver Beach Pizza, and Zick’s Specialty Meats for helping us throw the party of the winter. See you next year St. Joseph!
