We attended the awards ceremony at the outdoor ice stage Friday night and were happy to see many outstanding artists win awards. In particular, I was glad that my favorite sculpture won the artists' choice award. After the event, we picked up our results and were pleased to discover that we placed 25th out of 29 teams in the realistic category. With as many problems as we had, I think it was a pretty good result for our first effort.
The sculptures had all been lighted by colored lights on Friday. These will remain in place until Ice Art closes for the year.
