The St. Joe festival was no where near as big as Niles, and after seeing the huge castle and other massive carvings at last year's show, I was a bit disappointed in this show. However, there were some really lovely ice sculptures to admire, so the trip wasn't a total bust.
My favorite was this mermaid ice sculpture:
Jason's favorite was the Chicago Cubs World Series Champion Ice Sculpture, but the burger and beer was a pretty close second.
Is there anything better than a cold beer and cold pizza? ;)
There was an oversized snow person making balloon animals for the kids.
If that wasn't your thing, you could try your hand at the dead frozen fish toss. Which really wasn't my thing either. Yuck!
Allison has been obsessed with roosters for quite a few years, and even more so after seeing the hilarious rooster Heihei in Moana, so we made her stop for a photo with this one.
Even though it wasn't as big as last years ice festival, we still had a great time and will return if they put on another ice show next year.
Does your town put on ice festivals?
