Rochester Fire & Ice Festival needs 200 volunteers

Oakland County Parks and Recreation seeks 200 volunteers for the Rochester Fire & Ice Festival weekend, Jan. 25 – 27, 2013.

“We couldn’t make the event the success that it is without our volunteers,” Volunteer Program Supervisor Rachel Boyd said. “The service requirement is only 2.5 hours total over the course of the three-day event. In return, we offer our volunteers a free Oakland County Parks and Recreation waterpark pass and hand warmers. The Rochester Fire Department will also provide volunteers with free hot chocolate to keep warm.”

Volunteers are needed for numerous activities at Fire & Ice Festival. Previous experience is not necessary.

The Fire & Ice Festival features an ice skating rink, snowshoe and cross-country ski demonstrations, tube sledding, dog sled demos, ice sculptures, fireworks, marshmallow roasting, trolley rides, light show and more.

Call 248-975-9717 or email for details about volunteering for this fun annual event.

The Fire & Ice Festival takes place in downtown Rochester.

Hours are: Friday, Jan. 25 6 – 9 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 26 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 27 from 
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
