As snow fell, Frosty the Snowman made his annual visits and sled ride with kids on Friday night at this winter event that included dog sled demonstrations, horse-drawn carriage rides, ice sculpting demonstrations by master ice sculptor Max Bollkman Zuleta, and children's crafts.

Chelsea Tillman, 14, of Gurnee huddled with friends said, "The three fire pits are the best and warmest part of the festival".

Festival goers were able to warm up by the fire while roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.
