Come out and enjoy the Ice Festival in Cripple Creek, Colorado this weekend!
The 4th Annual Cripple Creek Ice Festival 2011 is going to be held on February 11th – 13th, and 19th – 21st.
The Ice Festival will be featuring “Story Time,” where ice carvers will incorporate their interpretation of classic literature into art.
Spectators that enjoy watching the ice carving are invited to watch sculptors wield chainsaws and carving tools to create their masterpieces. This family friendly event will have several activities for children and adults, including two ice mazes, an ice slide, a martini bar, and retail and food vendors on the street and in the heated event tent. Visitors are encouraged to visit both weekends, as sculptors will be carving throughout the two weeks and additional new ice sculptures will be carved for the second weekend. So put down that book, bundle up, and join us for this two-weekend event as we transform Bennett Avenue into a literary work of art!
