Our World - Fire in ice

With the temperature 25 degrees and light snow falling, downtown Frederick celebrated the first Saturday in February. The theme was "Fire in Ice", with about 45 ice sculptures sponsored by various businesses. Ira Dixon created the sculptures. Above he demonstrates his talent at Brewer's Alley.

A little warmth, roasted marshmellows and s'mores.

Amazing talent these ice sculptors have!
I have a fire pit like one in one of your photos. I don't get to use it much...It doesn't get cold enough here....sigh.
Smiles,

Great ice pictures but the star picture was your capture of the flying bean bag.

The ice sculpture is neat, it would be cold to sit on the love seat though! Sounds like a fun time, great photos.

I can't believe the amount of work it takes to create these sculptures! They do a beautiful show of these back home; I miss it.

Wonderful shots! You brought back some good memories. :)

Spokane had a Fire and Ice theme a couple of years ago for First Night--their New Year's Eve cultural celebration. The sculptures were incredible.
