Winter offers excuse for fun in Plymouth

January 15, 2013 by  

By embracing the cold rather than dreading it, the Plymouth Ice Festival expects to draw a large crowd. The focus of the event, many fabulous ice sculptures, will remain throughout the town center as long as the weather allows. In addition to the professionally created ice sculptures, attendees can watch local college students participate in the 31st annual carving competition held exclusively for college students.

Most of the festival’s activities are either in Kellogg Park or radiate out from it in close proximity. In addition to the sculpting competition, Kellogg Park will also be the location of the ice skating rink, with its Gathering Pavilion the designated location for a warming tent. Those events and attractions not centrally located at Kellogg Park may be found with the help of maps provided to aid people in find their way about.

Like any festival, food will play an important part in the Ice Festival with 15 diverse food options available in the heart of the festival area. For those who want to come in out of the cold and sit for their meal, their maps will list a variety of local restaurants. With the help of stationery printing, these eateries may combine their cuisine with a little branding and acquire some permanent patrons. In addition to maps, print companies are employed to provide lists of events .

The Plymouth Ice Festival kicks off at 3:00 pm this Friday, January 18 and continues on Saturday and Sunday starting at 10:00 am. It closes Friday and Saturday nights at 10:00 pm and wraps up at 6:00 pm on Sunday.
