2012 Manayunk On Ice Is Set For This Weekend, February 10-12: Ice Sculpting, Bonfire, Craft Sale And More
Nothing says, “I love you” like a chainsaw furiously ripping away at a massive block of frozen H2O.
If this sounds like the perfect way to declare your love, then cozy up with the National Ice Carving Association as they present this year’s Valentine’s Day-themed 2012 Manayunk on Ice, February 10-12, on Main Street.
The opening ceremony lights up Friday evening with an ice bonfire from 6-8 p.m. where you can fill up on sips and fare from Couch Tomato, Kildare’s and Chabaa Thai Bistro and peruse goods from participating merchants like TAG Denim and Manayunk Greenworks.
Saturday and Sunday include two competitions as the “Ice Carvers” and “Master Carvers” come from all over the country to bring hours of skillful crafting and sculpting to portray this year’s romantic theme: passion.
All participants compete for ten places with first receiving the grand prize of $2,000, bringing someone’s Valentine a whole lot of roses and chocolates.
If admiring from afar with a hot cocoa in hand is more your style, then check out the weekend schedule here.
