Back in March we headed to Fairbanks to go to the World Ice Art Championships at the Ice park. This is still one of our favorite things we have done in Alaska so far, it was so fun! We went to check out the sculptures after a few days of 40+ degrees, so they were all pretty melted, but they were still incredible to look at.
But the thing my kids loved the most was the huge ice slides. We were there for a few hours and I think they would have stayed even longer if we could have.
I have a million zillion pictures, and I was having a hard time sorting them, so here they all are. Good luck.

I really liked this sculpture. It had little mini football players all over it.
This sculpture was probably my favorite. I wish I could have seen it before it melted. It was a sinking pirate ship getting attacked by an octopus. The detail was awesome.

All the ice was carved to look like wood.
These sculptures below are the single block sculptures.
Then it was home for jammies and hot chocolate.
