Each brutally cold winter, millions of people across the state of Michigan ask themselves the same question: “Why do I live here?”
But then we remind ourselves of the existence of ice carving festivals, and the frostbite miraculously retreats from our extremities.
Yes, that’s right, this Saturday, February 9th is Washtenaw County’s annual ice carving festival! Come on down to County Farm Park from 12-4 PM and watch students from regional colleges compete for ice carving fame. Admission is free, if you needed more motivation to watch amazing art created before your very eyes.
Additionally, there will be refreshments and crafts for kids (though if we’re being honest, I will also be participating), so bring along the whole family!
