We got a phone call from some friends asking if we wanted to meet them at the Ice Sculpture Exhibit just down the street from where we are staying right now. We bought tickets and went in under a canopy of round, red Chinese lanterns.
We entered and were greeted by the first large ice sculpture. We were surrounded by people there with families and many taking pictures of themselves by the sculptures.
We continued down the long walkway lined with ice sculptures and two ice block slides.
Dan and the kids had fun on both slides. They especially had a blast though, riding down the longer of the two (probably 80-100 feet long). I think I had more fun, though, watching the faces of all those who came down one after another sliding between the two ice walls!
