Iron Pour Steel Yard — [Postponed to 11.11]

[Update: Due to the goddam frigging weather, this event has been postponed to November 11. Aaaarggh! Thank you commenter.]

The fiery spectacle known as the Iron Pour is back! This Saturday The Steel Yard will light up the skies over Sims Avenue as they melt over 2,000 pounds of luminous iron in their custom-built tilt furnace. A trained pour crew will activate larger than life sculptures with fire and molten metal. It’s a one-of-a-kind industrial art event and it’s free!

In tandem, they’ve partnered with all of their Sims Avenue neighbors to produce the 18th Annual Iron Pour & Sims Avenue Festival! Everyone on Sims will be out in force, selling beer and cocktails, food, flowers, hot sauce, ice cream . . . and more. More than twenty artists will take over the center of the street . . . while demonstrations of blacksmithing, glass blowing and more will mesmerize.

So it’s not just glowing crucibles of molten iron pouring through pumpkin faces and sparking into the night.

This free event promises to be a night filled with excitement and spectacle. Explore the street festival and enjoy live music, delicious food, watch some fire-art demonstrations . . . Once the fires are in full swing, watch as sculptures and props are brought to life with molten metals right before your eyes!

Iron Pour, free, 4pm to 9pm, Saturday, November 11, Steel Yard, Sims Avenue, (directions)
