York’s Winter Ice Festival Brings the Party to Downtown York on January 13!
York Traditions Bank and Eventive, the events division of the York Revolution, are excited to announce the fourth annual FestivICE event!
FestivICE will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 13 on Beaver Street and Cherry Lane in the “Market District” of downtown York.
At the heart of the ice festival will be — you guessed it — ice, and lots of it. Before their dazzled audience, ice sculptors from DiMartino Ice Company of Jeannette, PA, will turn chainsaws and chisels into fine art implements and sculpt more than 20,000 pounds of ice into a wide range of winter-themed creations, including a giant throne featuring the FestivICE mascot, the Yeti. They’ll even craft a 40-foot ice slide for kids to experience with the purchase of a $5 wristband.
FestivICE will feature great options for partygoers of all ages, including live music, fire pits, face painting, balloon art, and appearances by York Revolution mascot DownTown and the FestivICE Yeti, who will once again lead the York-famous Yeti stomp line dance.
