Downtown Rochester transforms into an icy oasis for Social-ICE! Unique themed bars—each with its own signature drink—and full-scale ice sculptures illuminated with vibrant hues light up the winter-drab night. Keep your blood pumping with nightly live DJ entertainment. This oh-so-nICE, cold-weather event is open to the public.
