The Medina Ice Festival is a four-day weekend event that runs from February 15th to 18th. The first three days consist of different carving contests, with Monday being a final showcase for the iceworks. There are speed carving contests, where artists have twenty minutes to create works of frozen beauty, along with individual and team carving contests.
Here's a few of the final works on display in the Medina town square, amazing works coming from nothing more than frozen water and Winter chill.
