SANDUSKY, OH – Art & Culture | Ice Sculptures

February 8, 2010

The 3rd Annual Arctic Ice Festival was held in downtown Sandusky this past weekend and featured Aaron Costic, Olympic Gold Medalist & National Champion Ice Carver. Aaron is a full time ice sculptor, with 20 years of experience.  He has placed in several Olympic challenges and won the Gold Medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. He is a two-time first place winner at the World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks, Alaska, and is the owner and instructor of Elegant Ice Creations out of Broadview Heights, Ohio.

The festival was put on by the city’s recreation division, the Maritime Museum of Sandusky and the Erie County Senior Center. Local organizations and businesses had the opportunity to sponsor a professionally-carved ice sculpture of their logo or own design. This was also the first year that the Amateur Ice Carving Competition was added to the line-up of family-oriented activities, sponsored by the Parker-Frost Foundation.
