The City of Burlington is hosting the Wisconsin State Ice Carving Championship as part of the 2022 Ice Festival. Over a dozen ice blocks will be placed throughout Wehmhoff Square Park. Each sculpture will be carved from a 300-pound block of ice that has been frozen in a special process to ensure that the blocks are crystal clear. The blocks are ten inches thick, twenty inches wide and stand forty inches tall on a wooden stand. The live sculpture carving, a favorite viewing attraction, showcases ice carvers using hand tools as they transform the massive blocks of ice into an array of giant masterpieces. When the competition is concluded, the sculptures are illuminated from underneath, which is a spectacular sight to see for days! The carvings will be completed by 3:00 pm on December 10. Come see them at your convenience for the next few days (weather pending).
