Nice Ice!

Ice sculpting is one of those activities that folks from the south hear about, see on the news occasionally and see in reality on a cruise ship at the midnight buffet. So when I found out that Rockford had an ice sculpting competition in the local park, I couldn’t wait to get there and see these creations for myself.
We had visited the park for the first time a few weeks ago and had noticed some large blue plastic covered boxes that looked like porta potties in size and shape. But there were so many of them scattered around and I knew they wouldn’t have that many in the park in winter and what good would they be all covered in plastic.
After the ice sculpting event, we realized that the large blue blocks were the ice blocks being prepared.

The creativity and attention to detail was astounding. I only wish I had gone sooner to watch the process being carried out. The Couch Potato was my personal favorite.
