(ABC 6 News) – One of the best parties in southeast Minnesota will gear up for its return next week.

Social-ICE will start on Friday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m.

You can expect to see ice sculptures and ice bars, with a long list of family friendly activities to enjoy.

Though this winter has seen warmer than usual temperatures, organizers say they have prepared for anything.

“Well, if it’s 40 degrees, we tell people to dress approximately but come ready to party because, no matter the temperature, it’s going to be a great party,” said Kathleen Harrington, the interim executive of the Rochester Downtown Alliance. “So, we have been saying whether your wearing shorts and sandals or snow pants, it’s going to be fun.”

The event will run from Friday Feb. 23 and wrap up on Saturday at 10 p.m.
