Challenge yourself and express your creativity in an uncommon medium – ICE! The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center is seeking beginner, intermediate and advanced ice carvers for the 2017 Fire and Ice on Saturday, February 18.
Ice carvers compete for cash prizes, and begin carving at 9 a.m. in various locations in downtown Sturgeon Bay. A panel of volunteers will judge all ice carvings beginning at 2pm. The award ceremony begins at 3pm in the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center (36 S. Third Ave.). Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded by carving experience level.
Individuals, and teams of friends and family, are encouraged to carve. Participation is free and carving experience isn’t necessary for beginner level. Only 15 ice blocks are available for carving, and competitors will be accepted based on the date of submitted application and carving sketches.
New this year: All carving levels may use power tools; beginners may use basic power tools, such as hair dryers, heat guns, or drills. (Anyone under 18 years must have parental supervision). Hand carving tools are available for use from the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center for a $10 refundable deposit.
To participate, fill out the Ice Carving application online at www.SturgeonBay.net on the Fire and Ice page.
Ice and snow block sponsors are still needed to make the carvings a reality! Each block costs SBVC $100. Will you sponsor?
To receive an application by mail or sponsor an ice or snow block, contact the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center at 920.743.6246 or vacation@SturgeonBay.net.
