Will we see you there? We sure hope so! This fantastic winter festival at Lake Chelan runs the first two weekends of January and promises great food, great fun and great people! The Seattle Times figures it is the perfect excuse to escape the city and we have to agree…
“Itching to get out of the city? Plan now to unwind after the holidays. If you’ve only ever been to Lake Chelan for summer swimming when the place is hot and hopping, here’s an occasion to see the wintry side (with some Arctic-oriented activities).
“Why leave town: Because as nice at it is to sip eggnog in an overheated house with visiting relatives from Ohio, everybody needs to decompress
“What’s going on: Lake Chelan Winterfest
“When and where: The first two weekends of January (with the most activities Jan. 13-15), in and around the town of Chelan and its 55-mile-long lake (third-deepest in the United States). Also in the neighborhood: wineries of the Lake Chelan AVA, the state’s newest American Viticultural Area (think mulled wine).
“What’s special: Ice sculptures by international artists (carving 2 tons of ice), lots of live music, wine walks, an ice lounge, wagon rides, a Soupfest, the Fire and Ice Parade, a polar-bear swim, giant bonfire on the beach and fireworks.
“What to expect: Views of snow-capped buttes and frosty orchards. Breaks for skiing or tubing at nearby Echo Valley ski area (www.echovalley.org).“
We will be there per-usual sculpting away, just keep an eye out for Steve sporting his famous (or infamous!) fur hat straight from Alaska… watch the video below – can you spot us carving ice throughout?
The New Year is a time for resolutions and new beginnings – one predictable thing about it is that it happens every year, and every year Creative Ice has been creating amazing sculptures to help celebrate it!
These babies are brand spanking new and ready to take on the New Year’s toughest celebrations! Make sure you aren’t left behind and get your order in today, with a two-man team there are only so many super special Ice Beer Mugs to go around during the holidays… you’ve been warned!
Like it or not, Thanksgiving is almost upon us – and with it the perfect time to order your Turkey Ice Sculpture… or a Cornucopia, Oyster Bar, and the always perfect (and boxed for easy handling!) Ice Trays to serve up your cold dishes! Check out these beauties -
Oktoberfest is just around the corner and it is one fantastic holiday! September is the month to start donning your lederhosen and dirndl and there is no better way to entertain your guests than with this amazing Beer Stein!
Proudly display your favorite bottled beverage while keeping it chilled to perfection!
Mother’s Day barely had respite to enjoy itself in full glory with only 2 weeks separating it from Easter… but that doesn’t mean we haven’t taken the time to show appreciation. To all of the Mothers out there – Thank you!
