Beginning in 1989, each year dozens of international teams work feverishly for 48-hours to turn blocks of ice into a work of art. Using chainsaws, chisels and other tools, the sculptors are fascinating to watch and always draw a large crowd. Only skill and time limit the artists who produce a wide variety of pieces from life-size wildlife, angels or architectural designs. Be sure to check out the sculptures at night as they are lit up by colored lights that reflect through the ice. There is no admission charge.
