Crystal clear art
It’s an incredible experience, where every sculpture is created from crystal clear water from the natural resources in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The blocks of ice are known throughout the world as the “Arctic Diamond”. Each block of ice is cut, harvested and transported by dedicated volunteers then sculpted by world class artists. Of course none of this can occur with the amazing support by our sponsors and community.
Only this many days until Ice Alaska & the COOLEST event will be open........
