We told you earlier about Fairbanks' homage to winter called the Ice Alaska festival. In addition to watching ice-carvers from around the world making like Michelangelo with their frozen blocks, visitors also can play at the kid's ice park. There's a skating rink for mini hockey players, a tunneled maze, huge characters to climb on, including some from the Ice Age movies, bowls in which to sit and be spun, all cut from blocks of ice.
Did we mention the slides?
PFS' Alaska staff has been known to gather en masse at the festival. Let's hope they continue the tradition this year--and that they go at night.
