On Sunday, as the last activity of the winter break we took the kids to the Plymouth Ice Carving festival.
To say it was a cold day out was an understatement - even bundled up it was chilly to say the least. It did make it great for ice carving though as there was no risk that a statue might melt in the slightest bit.
The carvings were most impressive:
There were dragons:
There were ice bunnies:
There was an ice car complete with an ice logo:
And of course there had to be ice cold beer.
In addition to the already made sculptures, teams were busy making more right in front of the onlookers:
Very impressive and these teams were very serious about their craft.
In addition to the ice carving there were the typical handicrafts and food vendors of any town fair aplenty - hot drinks and hot caramel corn did a very brisk business indeed.
Plymouth did a nice job putting the festival on and it was very well done and organized.
Just a fun outing before school started up again.
