Marvel At A Walkway Of Sculptures At Iowa's Most Magical Ice Festival This Winter
The Christmas season will soon be in the rearview mirror, but that doesn’t mean the winter fun will go with it! Iowa knows that there’s nothing to liven up a long, cold winter like some offbeat festivities, and that’s where Beat the Bitter comes in. This North Liberty-based organization holds several festivals and events each year, including a 5K race and other winter games – but nothing comes close to their epic Fire & Ice event, returning January 29th, 2023 with a host of activities to marvel at – and in some cases, participate in. The highlight is definitely the Ice Sculpture Walk, a technicolor wonderland that brings creatures from the depths of the sculptor’s imagination to vivid life. There are enough activities here that you’ll want to spend the whole day at the festival – and it’s a surefire way to make the later winter just as merry and bright as the holidays.
