Show on past Ice World

The weather is warming up, but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch the latest winter wonder. the Ice Sculpting Masters Drive-Thru Ice World arrives at the Warren County Fairgrounds Thursday, March 18 through Saturday, March 20.

The event, presented by Columbus-based ice sculpting company rock on ice and the Warren County Fairgrounds, will feature approximately 50 beautifully illuminated, intricate and larger-than-life ice sculptures. These hand carved sculptures will be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of your own car.

Greg Butauski, a certified master carver at Rock On Ice, says the event was born out of COVID-19 with the goal of providing people with a safe way to appreciate art and help the ice carving business. .

“We wanted to exhibit our work and include other ice artists whose businesses have been impacted by the pandemic,” Butauski said in an email.

This will be the fourth Drive-Thru Ice Sculpting Masters in Ohio, following two in the Cleveland area and one in Delaware, Ohio.

According to Rock On Ice Facebook page, the ice sculptures are kept in freezers when not on display, so there is no need to worry about these works of art melting if the weather warms up. The page also states that new sculptures will be sculpted for each night of the event.

Tickets are limited so lines can be kept to a reasonable length and can be purchased for around $30 per car, SUV or small van. Customers are encouraged to use the restroom before showing up so that the flow of traffic is not interrupted.

The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. from March 18 to 20 at the Warren County Fairgrounds in Lebanon at 665 N. Broadway Street.
