New this year is Friday Light-Up Night!

This year’s event is a first, consisting of 2 days of ice carving magic. Beginning Friday, February 21 from 5-8PM, live carving will be taking place in Diamond Park in Butler, PA. Many of the pre-carved sponsored ice blocks will be displayed in a beautiful array of colored lights. It will be a sight to behold, so have your camera ready and soak up the festive atmosphere with a cold adult beverage or a warm cup of hot cocoa. There will be plenty of food and beverage vendors available for all.
