This signature Winter Carnival event returned as blocks of ice were transformed into beautiful masterpieces. Endless photo opportunities are available in Rice Park with the completed creations.
Both team and individual ice carving competitions are guided by a strict set of rules, requiring artists to utilize their best creative thinking. Additionally, competitor’s sculptures must be consistent with a sketch that was proposed and selected by the Selection Committee.
The final designs can be viewed throughout Rice Park during the 10 days of Carnival (January 28-February 6, 2022), weekdays 4-10 pm, Saturdays 10 am-10 pm and Sundays 10 am-5 pm.
