Diehl Automotive Toyota is again the Event Sponsor for Carved in Ice. It features Wine & Brew Tasting, the popular Chili Cook-Off among local restaurants, music, and a variety of both popular and new activities for the kids and their families! The Weekend Backpack folks return to the Art Center to host crafts for the kids. The balloon artists will be offering free creations, DYEnamic Flame will leave you in awe, and just wait until you see the ice sculptures sponsored by area businesses! The 50-50 raffle promises the winner a big jackpot, while the basket auction features unique and beautiful treasures. Sample the chili and then chow down on the great food truck goodies.

How about that ice slide? It’s the favorite of all the youngsters, but dress them warmly since ice is wet! They can sit on the new tractor sculpture and mug for the camera in many new interactive designs that are perfect for those Facebook and other pictures! Thousands of people come to marvel at the incredible skill and creativity of the DiMartino ice carvers from Jeannette. Who knows what the weather will be on February 23rd? But come sunshine or snow you are guaranteed to have lots of fun in a cold snow month!
