He will be greatly missed 😢 My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. 🙏🏻

So very sad. Thoughts and prayers for the family

So very sad. Sending all my love to the family.

Butch was an awesome volunteer. Prayers to his family

Prayers to Marsha and family. The community and myself will miss him.

Our hearts are broken! He was so good at scaring the crap 😳 out of me....all he had to do was walk up to me and yell hey or boo and I would jump! He was the king of startling me whether at the hotel (Francois) or in the park working on lights for Nightfalls, on the ice for Fire and Ice or even at Summer Splash! Thoughts and Prayers to his family.

Our hearts are broken too. Miss you Butch! Our sympathy to his Celebrate Redwood Falls Family as well as the rest of his family and friends. Many hugs to all of you!

I’m so sorry to hear this 💔. Butch was such a friendly man to with. I’ll always remember his good mood.

Butch was a good friend of my Redwood Falls family.. The volunteers of all the festivals will miss a kind soul always there when needed. Rest in peace Butch.

I have been praying for you, Craig and Cindy! I know how important Butch was to you as well ❤️

Keeping friends and family in our thoughts and prayers.

Butch was a kind soul. My deepest condolences to the family 🙏🙏

Butch was such a stand up guy. If something needed to be done, he was there. 😔

So sorry for your loss. Butch is a loss to so many. I pray that you and his family may find peace during this difficult time.

Such a wonderful picture of Butch. Love his smile! This is how I want to remember him.

Our community was blessed by Butch’s leadership and caring heart. I enjoyed getting to know him while he served on the Hospital Commission. Sending prayers of peace and comfort.

Blessings to his family and friends. He will be missed dearly

Heartfelt condolences to you all. Sending prayers of strength during this sad time.

Butch always had a warm smile and caring heart! Such a kind person! 💔

He was a man with a golden heart. He will be greatly missed!!! Prayers 🙏

Butch was such a happy, joyful volunteer for Celebrate Redwood Falls -- and many other organizations. Great man. So sorry.

Unfortunately, the ice is not thick enough for us to hold Fire & Ice as planned and with the warming temperatures ahead, we have decided to cancel this year. We know it's a disappointment but we learned that the ice is still only 4-6" in some areas despite the stretch of subzero temps. We hope to see you at NightFalls May 2-4! #RedwoodArea #CRWF #FireandIce ... See MoreSee Less

One year it was on land due to that. And it was fun!

Sorry…

Good call !!

Still have it and hold it where Summer Splash events are held

Noooo

Is it really that hard to just have everyone set up by the pool/baseball field instead of the ice? Then just do the fireworks in the same spot over there where you do in the summer, shouldn't be to difficult to change or get new event permits since it's a City Celebration 😏 Someone's coming across as lazy... Do better!

I’ll be at NiteFalls 😇

I was just talking with a friend last night about going to this event. Too bad it couldn't be moved. I don't remember anything that had to be on a lake. The food and beverage stands, the mini golf, the DJ, sitting areas and fire bins for warming nothing requires them to be on a frozen lake. Decisions been made and we'll look forward to next year.

Sad…

Safety is always a number 1 priority.

People have been asking us, "do you think there will be enough ice to have Fire & Ice this year?" for several weeks now and while it's never certain, we felt pretty confident because it's Minnesota and it gets cold around here! Did you know the lake froze over completely the day before Thanksgiving? It really did! In early Dec, people were out enjoying the lake for a few weeks until the unbelievably warm stretch around Christmas opened up areas around the lake again. It didn't take long for it to freeze back over and given the forecast, looks like we're in for some serious ice making between now and Feb 3! Anglers are back on the ice and we even saw some ice skaters over the weekend. Rest assured, we'll monitor the ice thickness as we get closer and relocate and/or postpone if needed but looks like Mother Nature is giving us the cold snap we need over the next few weeks. #FireandIce #CRWF #RedwoodArea ...

Will there ever be an ice fishing tournament as part of the festival now that the lake has been dredged.

You definitely put the “Merry” in Christmas🎄🎅🏼

Great float!!! Imagination.

Should at least wait until after Thanksgiving. There's a reasone for both holidays and people are forgetting that!

We weren’t able to be here for it as we were still in Arizona, but you do an amazing job of promoting Redwood Falls to our own community and others around. Beautiful floats. Awesome way for people to support and promote our businesses as well as get together with people to celebrate the holidays.

Blessings Always..Enjoy Christmas!
