It was Friday after work, my family and friends decided to go see the new home of Ice Alaska and of course see the ice sculptures. One of my friend paid for all our entrance fees, see the cost below. We had a great time. My 6 years old boy Alan and his friend Frank had a good time playing on the slides and on ice sculptures. Great for the whole family. But make sure though if you go, to dress up warm and don’t let the sun fool’s you. You can enjoy park better if you are comfortable warm.

Ice sculptors from all over around the world come to Fairbanks, Alaska for annual ice art competition and exhibition to show their amazing skills.

The Ice Alaska found a new home this year at Tanana Valley State Fairground for 2019 World Ice Art Championships event. After a year off (2018), they are now back to business! Although they are not as huge as I can remember they used to, it was good enough for me. I went around, check each one and didn’t get too cold.

Even though most of the sculptors we’re not done sculpting, it was awesome to see them on action. My favorite was seeing them using a chainsaw, carving and sculpting block of ice and turning it to something magical.  That's amazing!
Indian Warrior: Artists - Baban, Angelito from Philippines and Marquina, Frederick from Canada
The Cutest Dragon: Artists - Kimura, Hiroaki and Nakamura, Junichi both from Japan

This was my favorite! I like the intricate details specially on this cute dragon. I also love how shiny the horns are. The details on the shoes are really cool as well.
I love the clear shiny horns
