Ice carvers braved the chilly elements Feb. 13 during the Fire & Ice ice-carving contest to create original “ice-terpieces” out of 300-pound ice blocks, and judges walked the streets of Sturgeon Bay to determine the winning sculptures.
In the beginner category, Collin Richter received first place for his gnome sculpture; Meghan Lampereur took second for her Cana Island Lighthouse sculpture; and Rio Martinez was awarded third place for his fish sculpture.
Scott Stettin’s sculpture, “The Phoenix,” earned first place in the advanced category. Seth Wilson and John McCaulley’s Steel Bridge sculpture took second place, and Reynaldo Clemente’s peacock was awarded third place.
The People’s Choice Award went to Dave Bartels for his sculpture of bears roasting marshmallows.
