Ice Sculptures in Downtown Collingwood

One of the really nice things about living in Collingwood is that there is always something new to see or do and this holiday is no exception.

For the first time this year, the folks at Downtown Collingwood are hosting an Ice Sculpture Festival that runs now through to New Year’s Eve.  The work is being done by a company called Iceculture and this year’s event here will consist of more than 22,000 pounds of ice!
 
According to the website, “Iceculture is one of the larger players in the hospitality ice business, worldwide, and is recognized as a leader when it comes to developing unique and exciting designs in ice, such as the beaded ice curtain and the ice portrait. The company currently holds the Guinness World Record for the largest ice sculpture; created for GM at the Canadian Auto Show in Toronto using 2000 blocks of ice and completed by a team of fourteen ice carvers. Iceculture has also designed and installed more than twenty permanent and semi-permanent ice lounges and restaurants around the world – in Dubai, Thailand, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, India, Greece and throughout theUnited States.”

I popped own this morning in the -12 degree freeze to have a look for myself and was darn impressed.  Then I found this terrirfic video done by Big Screen FX here in town that shows the creation of one of these sculptures from beginning to end.  So that’s how they do it!
