Challenge yourself by carving an ice sculpture during the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s (SBVC) Fire and Ice event on Saturday, Feb. 16. The SBVC is seeking beginner, intermediate and advanced ice carvers for the 2019 ice-carving competition from 9 am to 2 pm.
Individuals and teams of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate. Ice carvers will compete for cash prizes ranging from $10 to $150. Carvers will receive a goodie bag filled with an assortment of items to use throughout the day. Carvers may begin carving at 9 am in various locations throughout Sturgeon Bay. A panel of volunteers will judge all ice carvings beginning at 2 pm. The awards ceremony begins at 3 pm at SBVC, 36 S. Third Ave. Sculptors who place from first through third in each carving level will receive cash prizes and ribbons.
There is no cost to participate. Carvers at all levels may use power tools. Basic power tools such as hair dryers, heat guns or drills may be used. Anyone younger than 18 years old must have parental supervision. Hand carving tools are available for use from SBVC for a $10 refundable deposit.
