Combining two signature Winter Carnival events – the Ice Carving Competition and the Snow Sculpture Contest – this drive-thru experience will take place at the State Fairgrounds each day during the Carnival.
Upon entering the route, each car will receive a swag bag, bingo card, and the chance to purchase some treats to enjoy during the ride. Dozens of visual stops will showcase snow and ice masterpieces sculpted by local artisans, many of whom have participated in past Winter Carnival contests. Attendees will also be able to vote on their favorite creations, and visit with the Vulcans, the Royal Family and the Klondike Kates on select dates!
