Fire and Ice festival needs volunteers

Next year's event will mark the festival's 20th year, as well as Qualicum Beach's 100th

Roger Griffiths wants to make sure next year’s Fire and Ice festival is one for the record books, but he needs a little help to make that happen.

The chair of the Fire and Ice committee said his group held a meeting Tuesday and only five people showed up.

“We were short on numbers, but we plan to meet again on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at The Gardens. We need three or four more people.”

Anyone who would like to get involved in Fire and Ice can call Griffiths at 250-752-9081 or go onto the Fire and Ice website at and send an email or they can attend the meeting on Nov. 15.
