Hamilton Ice Fest:  The winter season is approaching quickly and that can only mean one thing…the return of IceFest in Hamilton, Ohio! The ice festival whisks visitors away to a winter wonderland filled with ice sculptures, ice carving competitions, yummy hot chocolate, and family-fun activities. The Hamilton-based organization, City of Sculpture, leads the way in the planning of the event. An estimated 200 blocks and 40 tons of ice are needed for the event; then locally and nationally-based carvers will chisel and create to bring the works of art to life. IceFest has featured a Technicolor Ice Walk, Human Dog Sled Races, and of course, competition carving.
