Save the Date!

Mark your calendars now for the 12th annual Lamberton Hot Iron Days, to be held Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9-10! We look forward to another year of food, fire and fun. There truly is something to enjoy for all ages. New this year will be a petting zoo and expanded kids' games.

We will again host sand shops Friday from noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. Our event is one of the most affordable and talent- (or lack thereof) friendly iron pours around. We love to help people of all ages and abilities create molds and learn about the entire process of metal art. Talent levels range from preschoolers to professionals - and ALL are welcome!

If spectating is more your thing, the "Sparks Under the Stars" Friday night pour is a wonderful thing to see, and the Saturday afternoon pour is a little more laid back and offers the opportunity to visit with the pour floor crew to learn more about the pouring process.

Our crew is working hard to bring you a successful Hot Iron Days. Stay tuned for the full 2016 schedule of events!
