Cranford Fire and Ice 2024

Last Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs battled it out with the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII. (Congratulations to the Chiefs, by the way, for a well-fought win.) What did you snack on while watching the big game? Nachos? Pizza? Sliders? Did you know that, according to the National Chicken Council, chicken wings are the most popular food eaten at Super Bowl parties? How does that tie into our little town? Well, at this year’s Cranford Fire and Ice event, you get the chance to vote for the “King of the Wing” in town.

  • What: Cranford Fire and Ice 2024
  • Where: Downtown Cranford

Cranford Fire and Ice 2024

Popular with the locals, organizers of this event show that “fire” and “ice” go together like peanut butter and jelly. How? Where else will you see artists creating masterpieces in ice while fire-breathers perform nearby? Enjoy warm cocoa and s’mores while you watch a balloon artist create cute animals and other objects to delight the crowd. There will also be face painters available to help get you in the festive mood.

As I said, the pièce de résistance of the entire day’s event comes when the winner of the “King of the Wing” is announced. Will Venue 104 claim the title for a third year in a row or will someone else snatch the title from them? You can help determine the winner by visiting all participating Cranford restaurants. Sample their wings and vote for your favorites before the end of February.

If Mother Nature decides not to cooperate, organizers plan a rain date of March 3rd. Keep an eye on the weather. Get out there and vote.
