Ice Fest coming to Downtown Ithaca Dec. 6-8

From December 6-8, the Commons will be packed with masterfully skilled ice carvers using chisels, chainsaws, and blowtorches to craft exquisitely detailed multi-shaped and -sized ice sculptures. Visitors will be able to watch the ice shaping competition while savoring beers, wines, or hot cocoa from a bar made completely out of solid ice. 

Alphabet Soup ~ Greta Pearl

Ithaca’s Greta Perl loves to be where the action is, so it’s no surprise she’s the manager of Alphabet Soup, a children’s toy store on the Commons that’s typically abuzz with children enjoying some type of activity. And, you can usually find Perl joining in on the fun.
