PLYMOUTH (WXYZ) - Sad the holiday season is over?
Try heading to downtown Plymouth where it is a winter wonderland.
Rachel Huhta and her mother, Kathleen Huhta, have made it a tradition to attend the Plymouth Ice Festival for years.
"There's a lot of exciting stuff to see and January is not a very exciting month so it's nice to come out and spend an afternoon with my mom," said Rachel Huhta .
According to organizers, not only will spectators be able to see amazing ice sculptures but Saturday they will get a chance to watch the artists make the magic happen.
"We also have what we call the dueling chainsaw speed carving competition Saturday night. We have professional carvers come in the crowd yells out what they want him to cut. They've got 15 minutes to cut it," said organizer Wes Graff.
He told 7 Action News 100,000 people are expected to gather over the weekend.
For those interested in some adult fun, E.G . Nicks has placed an ice bar outside to serve alcoholic beverages.
"It's a lot of fun for the bigger kids to come out and enjoy evening out doing that," said Graff.
