Time to celebrate winter again! The Annual Cripple Creek Ice Festival has arrived for the next two week-ends, February 11th, 12th, 18th & 19th.
Once again, this family friendly event will have several activities for children and adults, including two ice mazes, an ice slide, a martini bar, and retail and food vendors on the street and in the heated event tent. Visitors are encouraged to visit both weekends, as sculptors will be carving throughout the two weeks and additional new ice sculptures will be carved for the second weekend.
Last year’s “Story Time in Cripple Creek” delighted 85,000 plus people during the advertised event dates, with an amazing showcase of ice sculpted by world-famous and local artists. The 2012 event will feature a new theme, a “Military Salute Carved in Ice.” The Cripple Creek Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with The Home Front Cares to show Cripple Creek’s support of our service members and their families. Please check our website often for a detailed schedule of events and additional event information.
Plan to carve out some time to get up to Cripple Creek, Colorado to see some incredible chainsaw work. Be sure to dress warm and bring a camera!
