"Midsummer Fire Festival"
Christina Marie Yen - Rancho Palos Verdes, California

"Ragnaros exalts the festivities with a barbequed Gigantic Feast! Battle rouge elemental spirits blazon in a energizing dance upon his sizzling grill. Toasting Fresh Smorc's upon Ragnaros fire are welcome, but keep safe distance to reduce chance of taking burn damage. Ahune tries to steal the spotlight to this occasion! He commemorates by bringing his grand Ice Chest full of alluring frosty loots, which are generously Ice Stone cold. Frozen drinks of the Lord of Frost's Private Label are available until limited time, or until the Ice Stone has melted. Flame and Frost decorate the atmosphere as visitors enjoy the various festivities on the beach, from fire walking, torch throwing, blazing pole break-dancing, to huge snowball tossing, fiery horseshoe tossing, and flaming kite flying! Festive clothing, foods, toys, and Scorched stones are available for purchase with Burning Blossoms as well. "
