Ice Sculptures Are Coming To Downtown Bellaire

The American Culinary Federation of Northwest Michigan has partnered with Shanty Creek Resorts and the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce to bring “Art in Ice” to the Streets of Downtown Bellaire on March 3rd from 4pm to 7pm.  Watch 3000 pounds of ice transformed into community-supported Ice Sculptures before your eyes. Carved by local culinary artists, visitors are invited to watch 20”x40” ice blocks take shape. While in Bellaire, enjoy many of the family friendly restaurants and unique shops.

This event is in conjunction with Shanty Creek Resorts annual “Slush Cup” event on March 4th, one of Michigan’s most popular winter events for over 40 years. Watch the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as skiers and riders attempt to cross an icy 60′ pond. Some take it to another level with crazy costumes. Other events include a frozen fish toss, snow shovel racing and a seal slide — all part of the traditional wild and crazy weekend.
