Anchorage has a town square (downtown), where they have an annual ice carving competition. We popped down to see it this evening. I have to say, I wasn’t hugely impressed. I’ll need to go back in the daytime and perhaps I’ll have a different opinion. I appreciate this takes a lot of skill, and I would have a hard time carving a simple square.

They have also iced down a large part of the park so that it’s a big skating rink, which is really cool. We didn’t see anyone skating but were looking for puddles of frozen vomit given it’s location.  Just joking.
