Ice carving festival planned for court square

| February 20, 2014

COSHOCTON — Our Town Coshocton is hoping to bring people out of their winter hibernation this weekend.

“We wanted to do a winter event to get people out and do something fun,” said Ginny Mizer from Our Town Coshocton.

The organization will host an ice carving festival from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the court square. There will be a chili cook-off, live music, local and professional ice carvers, horse-drawn carriage rides and more.

“It’s all free,” Mizer said.

Attendees will be able to sample chili from 2 to 6 p.m. and view ice sculptures displayed with lights around the court square. They also will get to watch ice carving demonstrations from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. enjoy a Fire and Ice show by a master ice sculptor from Rock on Ice Productions.

“I think it’s going to be fun,” Mizer said. “We are excited for the event.”

Our Town Coshocton also hopes the event will help encourage people to discover what downtown Coshocton has to offer.

“We want people to sit down for dinner that day at one of the local restaurants and shop at the stores,” Mizer said. “You can only stand out in the cold so long so hopefully they will explore downtown while they are there.”

Our Town Coshocton is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, revitalizing and promoting historic Coshocton County.

“Our meetings are open to everybody who cares about Coshocton,” Mizer said.

The next meeting will be at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, in the Frontier Power Community Room. The speaker will be Judge Timothy France, who is the president of Coshocton is Blooming.
