Creative Expression In The Ice

The Fire and Ice Festival was a one night outdoor music event downtown at a spot along Bank Street during Winterlude. I didn't attend, but there were a good many smaller ice sculptures at various places along the street that were made for the occasion.

  7. I forget what happens at the end of this festival. Do they just let the sculptures melt?

  24. There is something rather ironic and especially wonderful about ice sculptures depicting hot cocoa and bonfires! All of these are works of art and amazing!

  25. Nighttime outdoor music festival? The surrounding ice sculptures would be a clue to me to pass on that one. I like them, though. The fireman sculpture is very clever and I always love animals.
