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.
