IGNITE, Cayuga County’s Young Professionals, will partner with multiple local agencies to host IGNITE theWinter! – a winter celebration organized in connection and build upon the established “First Friday” event on March 2, 2012 from 5 to 10pm. This event will take place at Exchange Street in the heart of Downtown Auburn.
The event will feature a comfort food cook off, where people can keep warm by tasting and judging chili, soups and chowders prepared by local restaurants and organizations. The event includes live bands, street performers, horse drawn wagon rides, and a live ice sculpture demonstration. IGNITE the Winter will also serve as the kickoff off for ‘Main Street Goes Blue,’ sponsored by Cayuga County Cancer Services Program.
“IGNITE the Winter! is about bringing people together to celebrate the good life in Central New York,” said Trish Ottley, IGNITE Steering Committee member and event coordinator. “The support and interest we’ve received from the City of Auburn and our partner agencies, like Majorpalooza and Auburn Doubledays, is overwhelming. We look forward to bringing new energy and excitement to Downtown Auburn this winter.”
