    Ice Sculpturing In Freezing Temperatures

     

    Local chefs competed with one another in an Ice Sculpting Competition at the Niagara Holiday Market on Saturday Dec 10, 2011. The event is one of many events organized at the First Annual Niagara Holiday Market in Niagara Falls that is designed on the lines of the European-Style Holiday Markets, and will run through the holiday season. So far we have visited the market twice since it was inaugurated on Black Friday. The Holiday Market is also drawing crowds from around Niagara and Erie counties and from across the US-Canadian border - Ontario and as far as Toronto. Other attractions at the Holiday Market are a giant Christmas tree, an ice rink, a Santa Clause on site, merchant shops, holiday concerts,  competitions and much more.
    Though my family and I did not wait for the results of the ice sculpting competition, the couple of hours we spent at the Holiday Market on Saturday was a lot of family fun and well-worth the trip. We hope to make one more visit to the Holiday Market before it closes for the season on January 2, 2012.
