Every year, on New Year's Eve, they have a 'festival' called "First Night". Although, since it's New Year's Eve shouldn't it be called "Last Night"? When we move to that town I will bring it up with the board. But, in the meantime, First Night has ice sculptures. All over the place. Companies sponsor an ice sculpture and put it in front of their office and there is also a little park where ice sculptures are out to be perused. It's like a little art show for ice. Very lovely. There is also someone selling hot chocolate and hot apple cider and kettle corn... it's quite quaint. (say that 3 times fast)
Can you guess which company sponsored this sculpture:
Oh, and in the past, there is usually snow on the ground and people are wearing their snow boots and are all bundled up. This year? Not so much. Global warming? All the ice sculptures were on green grass and causing quite a muddy mess...
This guy was not quite finished his masterpiece
Sculpting is amazing. Any form. Whether your medium is ice or clay or marble. It is just amazing to me how someone can see nothing and another person something incredible.
