Ice Facts
How do the sculptures last all weekend, you ask? Well, many of the smaller sculptures will be covered during the day because sunlight is the enemy of the ice sculptures! It penetrates the sculpture, warming it all the way through. But not to worry - the sculptures will be unveiled when the sun sets, illuminated with colored lights for the sculpture tour each evening!
