Every year, about the same time in February,
Rick and I head on down to the Peace Plaza, in the heart of Rochester
for a annual event called Social Ice.
I've blogged about it before, but every year brings new sculptures and adventure.
(True Minnesotans even sit on Ice Benches while getting their photo taken)
This year our adventure included Rick's Brother Brad and
his wife (and sweet friend of mine) Julie!
I dont think either of them are winter lovers,
but they were good sports to come along anyway!
The ice is so detailed and smooth.
I'm confused as to why no one is sitting on this bench :)
Egyptian theme Ice Bar "The Sphinx"
There were 7 different ice Bars set up around the plaza.
(Made of solid 12 ft slabs of ice)
This one was pretty cool, and airplane for Rochester's airport.
The men are hanging out with this guy (Storm Trooper)
Staying warm by the giant heaters that frequent the plaza.
