A few weeks ago, we traveled west of St. Louis to an interesting river town along the Missouri River. In New Haven, it’s become an annual event to showcase activities that ‘rely on the Wonder and Strength of Fire.’ We thoroughly enjoyed the New Haven Fire Festival, particularly the glass blowing, wood carving, blacksmithing, flaming-pumpkin chunking (via trebuchet), and the House of Fire and Ice display.
For the fire and ice display, thick chunks of ice surrounded a bonfire. As the bonfire roared, the icy fortress surrounding it slowly gave way. All in all, a very interesting event.
