How do they do it?! World famous Ice Sculpture Philly Company carved over 20 ice sculptures with chainsaws, scrapers and more into beautiful local masterpieces. Taking the family around to polar bears, Media specialties, inventive designs, a sledding bear, a tree of life, and others was a great family day and just fun to walk around, absorb and take selfies.  Pictures with Ice Princesses and their buddy, crafts, and a hospitality tent were bonuses. A great highlight was the life sized baby grand piano carved on the spot and then played in a concert for all of us. Thank you to Media Business Authority and the sponsors for putting this all together.

Neighbors visited this family friendly event to explore the seasonal sculptures and to get their photo ops in, a tribute to ‘Everybody’s Hometown’ by the clock tower and much more.

‘Ice on State’ provided a great opportunity for leisure seekers to stroll around taking in the artwork as well as Media shops, many of whom had their customized ice sculpture of their business. It proved to be a superb day for many of our local shop owners, who enjoyed entertaining customers and the boost in an often slow business month.

One of the fun activities for the kids included a ‘Make it Take it’ craft workshop at Homesewn on State. A tent was also available for guests to savor hot and cold drinks as they took in the fabulous concert sponsered by Media Arts Council with the baby grand piano ice sculpture thanks to Morris Brothers Investments.
