A Fantasyland in Ice, North America's Top Ice Carving Competition, the Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular, Runs Jan. 15-20, 2003.

PLYMOUTH, Mich. -- The Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular, a free, family winter festival, runs Jan. 15-20, 2003. North America's oldest and largest ice carving competition features fantastic ice sculptures lighted during the evening hours, adding a thrilling aspect to the dazzling works of art.

The Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular is composed of displays and competitions created by acclaimed professional ice carvers, talented amateurs, and notable college and high school students. The event is presented in conjunction with the prestigious American Culinary Federation, the organization sanctioning competitions. For details, see .

"The carvers come from across the United States and Canada -- and from as far away as Japan," festival producer Michael Watts said. "All of the men and women work in the frigid winter conditions of southeastern Michigan to create the display carvings and participate in individual and team competitions."

The competitions will take place Friday, Jan. 17, Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday, Jan. 19 in Kellogg Park, downtown Plymouth, and in the Central Parking Structure, directly across the street from the park. Other activities of special interest include the Farmer Jack Fantasyland, featuring ice displays for the delight of children and family members of all ages.

The 2003 Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular is a not-for- profit event, presented by The 2003 Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular, Inc. Foundation. The event's producer is Watts Up, Inc., a special events production company based in Plymouth.

The Plymouth International Ice Sculpture Spectacular is followed by a second ice carving festival, the 3rd annual Bay Harbor Ice Extravaganza, Feb. 14-17, 2003. Emerging as a world-class ice carving festival, this free public event will be held in the Marina District of the elegant resort community of Bay Harbor, Mich. The festival features 50 carvings prepared by world champion ice carvers and a chili cook-off that benefits the Little Traverse History Museum. For details, please call 888-BAY-HARBOR.
