Once again this year, I headed out to the park to see the Ice Festival. Once again it was unseasonably warm, but it was also pouring rain at times. Also hail and snow. It was a pretty yucky start to a day. Last year they were in front of Belvedere Castle, but this year, they set up shop on Bethesda Terrace. The carvers were artists from the Okamoto Studio.
Another perk was that this year there were several carvings, instead of just one. However, they had it all bunched together in one place, so there was still a massive crowd around it, making it difficult to see. I spent the time moving from ground level, to the stairs, even up on the overpass. The whole thing lasted several hours. I didn’t stay the whole time, but you’ll get a good sense of it from what I did see.
Next week: Lots of snow in the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
