The festival will feature dozens of ice sculptures spread throughout Easton’s historic district. The Discover Easton Signature Event will kick off with a Friday night Ice Block Party on February 14. The celebration will feature live music, fire performances, entertainment, and the unveiling of the weekend’s ice sculptures with a self-guided tour and light display. A grand ice carving demonstration, sponsored by Preston Automotive Group and Safehouse LLC, is the featured attraction during the Ice Block Party Friday evening. Watch as 3,000 pounds of ice will be carved into a spectacular work of art by the team of carvers from Ice Lab.
The weekend festivities will include family fun activities throughout, complimentary events, entertainment, seasonal sales and shopping opportunities, restaurant specials, and more to be announced.
