On Saturday, February 3rd, the town of Havre De Grace hosted their annual Havre De Grace Ice Festival. 50 beautifully crafted and polished sculptures hewn from blocks of ice adorned the streets of town, creating a festive atmosphere amidst the doldrums of winter.

In addition to the outdoor sights, the festival also hosts a vendor fair and children's play area inside the STAR Centre, formerly Havre De Grace High School. The facility features a gymnasium that hosted the vendor fair with character appearances, as well as two large bounce houses for kids to frolic about. The Centre's auditorium played host for the "Elsa and Friends" character show, as well as a "Jurassic Kingdom" presentation for children and adults alike. To top off the afternoon and evening's events, the festival featured a bit of wintry fire, by holding a chili cookoff, with more than a dozen entries from local restaurants and food service providers.

This was Patient First's initial year of participation with this event, and it could not have gone off more smoothly for us! With our Aberdeen center just six miles from the STAR Centre, our Aberdeen staff served as amazing representatives, as hundreds of people streamed by to thank us for the services we provide, and to help themselves to the promotional items on hand.

 This festival was a welcome addition to our event schedule, and we are already looking ahead to sponsoring future activities at the STAR Centre, including their summer camp program, and their gymnasium, which hosts sports programs year-round. To paraphrase Casablanca, it looks like the beginning of a beautiful partnership!
