My World - First Saturday Ice

Downtown Frederick celebrated First Saturday with the theme "Fire in Ice". Mother Nature coorporated by dumping 8 inches of the white stuff back on January 26 and some of it stayed for the celebration. (Last February's First Saturday was delayed by a couple of feet of snow.) Thirty-five businesses and organizations sponsored ice sculptures. I made my tour before the crowds appeared and missed the ice sculpting demonstration (last image). More shots of downtown will be posted Thursday on Window Views.

It's amazing what some artists can do with a chunk of ice!
