Saturday

Fire Sculpture at Silver Skate
Throughout each day of each weekend, a team of fire artists will be building a sculpture to be burned at 7:45pm later that evening. Each day features a different team of artists and each day presents a different interpretation of the story, “The Land of the Golden Apples.” In the story, the fire represents renewal and the release of thoughts that make us sad or any fear or regret that chases love from our hearts. The public is invited to write down any of the aforementioned thoughts in the Storytelling Tent to be offered to the fire sculpture.
