The Manayunk business district kicks off the 2013 Valentine’s Day Weekend with the return of the only extreme ice carving invitational in the region! Shrug off the winter blues and join them from February 8-10 for three days of live carvings and winter fun for the whole family at Manayunk On Ice.
The frozen love-inspired weekend will begin with ice being set ablaze at the opening Ice Bonfire. Then throughout the weekend master ice carvers will carve large ice sculptures live on Main Street, Fear No Ice will perform a theatrical ice carving show for visitors, and ice carving battles will put two ice carvers up against each other to battle it out for the best ice sculpture carved in just 30 minutes! Visitors can watch the live ice carving performances and also stroll the street and see 30 one of a kind commissioned ice sculptures for Manayunk businesses.
We know it's cold out, but that's half the fun! Be sure to bundle up so that you can keep warm and also enjoy the event. If you do get cold, they have many great restaurants and retail stores you can visit to warm up!
As you view all of the ice sculptures, make sure to vote for your favorite at the East River Bank table. A People's Choice Award will be given out to the carver with the most votes!
