The World Ice Art Championship Competiton

Annually in March cempetitors from over 15 countries compete in carving especally selected ice blocks into intricate designs. Some are sculpted from a single 4' x4' x4' block of clear ice. Other larger ones are made by carving sections and "gluing" them together with a slushy mix of ice and waer. The results are displayed in an outdoor park where they last for weeks in the very cold temperatures. We visited the Ice Park twice

Ice carvings are also seen at various locations around town like those in front of our hotel. Taking pictures was a challenge in the sub zero temperatures !.
