The only thing I could ever imagine doing when it’s -10° F is walking around in an ice enclosed ice park. So naturally Kate and I got in the car and drove to the World Ice Art Championships. We purchased our $25 season passes (1 month) and then probably saw about 1/4 of the single-block sculptures.
Some of these sculptures are really cool. They are all lit, so each little facet, crack, cut, and curve shines. This week is just single-block sculptures. Don’t let that fool you, some of these are huge!. Next week the multi-block sculptures start. We saw the blocks and I can confirm there are multiple ones.
This place has a huge kids park, with a lot of ice slides that you can probably get hurt on. They are fun, it doesn’t take a very big slope to build up a lot of speed. Tonight they were shoveling some of the bigger slides of the snow that fell yesterday.
