The 2nd annual Carlisle Ice Art Fest, sponsored by CenturyLink, decorated downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania with over 70 unique and pre-carved ice sculptures.

We walked to the event, which was held February 9-11, 2018, making this local experience our 21st adventure.

Many fun and family-friendly events filled the 3 day ice themed festival:  carriage rides, penguin toss, sing-alongs, a chili cook off, beer tasting, glass blowing, a variety of food vendors, a free showing of Edward Scissorhands, and ice carving demonstrations by ice artist Kevin Gregory.

We spent the day walking up and down the streets of our new city, shopping and visiting the wide range of local, unique stores and meeting a few shopkeepers.  BUY LOCAL!  🙂

My girls found several more Pennsylvania Historical Markers in town, too.

Overall, the Carlisle Ice Art Fest gave our family a very relaxing afternoon to enjoy our little city–and learn a little history!
