Plans for the Fifth Annual Wyoming Kids Extreme Ice Festival celebration are currently underway with the event scheduled for February 23 on the Barrett Building grounds, 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne.
Held as part of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails’ Wyoming Kids Extreme campaign, the Ice Festival 2013 is committed to reconnecting children and families with nature and the outdoors.
This year’s event is scheduled a month later to correspond with the longer Legislative session and also in hopes of experiencing more conducive weather.
The Ice Festival 2013, as in past years, will offer a variety of activities and demonstrations such as a snowshoe demonstration, a snowmobile simulator, a toboggan run, horse and carriage rides, snow games and more. These activities are free and open to the public.
Professional ice sculptors will also again be on hand to work their magic on gigantic blocks of ice. Also, snow making machines will be used to “help mother nature,” if needed. Snow making will begin several days before the event.
The public is encouraged to mark their calendars for what is expected to be another highly successful event again this year.
