Photos: Playing It Cool at Loveland’s Fire and Ice Festival

Loveland residents headed into the Sweetheart City's streets this past weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a blast of winter fun at the Fire and Ice Festival, an outdoor hoedown with ice sculptors, a heavy-duty snow-vehicle show, carriage rides, live music, marshmallow roasting and, to top it all off, a big fireworks show. Photographer Ken Hamblin was here to capture all the cool times; a sampler of his photos follows.

Now see the full Loveland Fire and Ice Festival slide show.
