Burlington Ice Festival December 16!

On Saturday, December 16, the City will be hosting their second ice sculpting contest in Wehmhoff Square Park. The City plans to have up to sixteen ice blocks placed around the park that will be carved all day by talented artists.

Each sculpture will be carved from a 300-pound block of ice that has been frozen in a special process to ensure that the blocks are crystal clear. Live sculpture carving, a favorite viewing attraction, showcases ice carvers using chain saws, propane torches and hand tools as carving masters transform massive blocks of ice into an array of giant masterpieces.

There is no cost to attend this all-day event. Please spend the day with us viewing the artists in action, taking a horse drawn wagon ride and also exploring our wonderful downtown!
