This is a yearly even held here in Fairbanks, Alaska.
There are different ice sculptures throughout town in front of buildings, but once a year the World Ice Art Championships are held.
A warm and inviting fireplace...
Beautiful works of art.
Polar bear swimming. See the little fish swimming beside him?
I believe this was my favorite.
Some of these are huge! See the folks working? Some of the artists were using blow torches.
When I saw this one it reminded me of Miss Janice over at http://etiquettewithmissjanice.blogspot.com. Miss Janice, this one's for you!
Little Companion and my daughter slid, I stayed upright and took pictures :).
Little old lady who lived in a shoe.
We enjoyed our time very much. I am so glad we were able to see these magnificent sculptures!
