If you’ve never seen an ice carving in progress and wonder how some of the stunning carvings are created, visit Titanic for the 5th Annual Professional Ice Carving Event. The competition takes place on January 15th between members of the National Ice Carving Association’s Titans of Ice.
The event itself is entirely free, so you are welcome to come with friends and family members to spend time watching the sculpture’s progress. Many of the artists will also be able to talk to you to enlighten you on the secrets of quality ice carving techniques. At 3 p.m. all of the ice carvings should be completed, and the official NICA judging panel will announce the winners. Make sure that you stay around to see if the judges agree with you about which competitor created the best ice sculpture.
While you’re in Branson for the ice carving event, make sure that you take the time to visit some of the area’s attractions and shows. To plan ahead and book lodging as well as tickets to the shows, you can visit BransonShows.com.
