Want to know about something cool happening this February that you can actually experience in person? It’s called The Ice Sculpting Masters Winter Wonderland Drive Through and it’s happening at the Erie County Fair Grounds in Hamburg.
A brand new event produced by The Ice Farm, it’s a Covid-era family friendly event that will take place between 5 – 10pm every night from February 11th – 15th.
Here’s how it works
Similar to the drive through style event that takes place every holiday season, The Festival of Lights, it will involve larger than life displays – this time made from ice by some of te best sculptors in the world. They will celebrate Valentine’s Day, include various classic sculpture styles, and a tribute to front line workers. Plus they will be brilliantly lit using colored LED lighting to highlight the brilliance of the hand carved masterpieces.
The drive through the event is expected to take about 15 – 30 minutes once you have entered the sculpture area. Admission is $25 per vehicle and includes all taxes and fees. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are only available online at maingatetickets.com. There are a limited number of tickets for each night and you must select a date and time slot when purchasing your ticket.
If you are currently thinking to yourself that this is the ideal opportunity to build an over-the-top ice shrine to Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills, you are not alone friend. It probably won’t happen because it doesn’t seem like these Ice Farm go-getters are exactly locals, but a Buffalonian can dream. #gobills
