Icefest

Yesterday, my brother, sister-in-law and I attended the annual Icefest here in Chambersburg. There were 45 small one-block sculptures and several large sculptures - these large ones were sculpted right on the street. I've never seen that part of the process - maybe one of these years. This photo is of a "Phoenix" sponsored by Wilson College - it was one of the more detailed sculptures and was just beautiful. Also featured this year was a 40' slide for the kids and young-at-heart - lots of fun by the look of it!! There was a chili cook-off and hot pepper eating contest - and also a few food vendors - lots of fun to help pass the winter. The sculptures will remain until they melt or get too dirty from the traffic. Since hubby stayed at home, I'll take him for a ride down Main Street during the week so that he can see some of these beautiful works of art.

I've always wanted to attend an Icefest - I was intrigued by a childhood book - "The Happy Hollisters" who took a trip to a festival in Canada and solved a mystery while there were there.
