It’s one of our favourite events of the year – The Ice trail is back for this weekend and this year it’s bigger than ever!
On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December from 10am until 5pm each day, visitors to the city centre can follow the Ice trail path and see the wonderful Ice Sculptures which have been sponsored by various shops and businesses in York.
It’s even extended out of the centre and we’ve heard that there will be a sculpture over at Monks Cross and the Vanguard – they are holding a selfie competition with it where you can win £100 shopping vouchers so it’s worth a trip out there too.
From a Lego Batman on Walmgate to the Night King character from Game of Thrones on Blake Street, to Garfield at the Cat Gallery, it promises to be another great year. A highlight on the trail will be The Mighty Viking provided by Hungate York Regeneration. Standing at two metres tall he is one of the largest sculptures in the trail. In St Sampson’s Square you can peer into the sky through Talk Talk’s Telescope and collect a ‘chill to reveal’ card for a chance to win a prize.
Live carving sessions will also offer the chance to see the skill behind the icy creations on Saturday and Sunday in St Helen’s Square at 3pm.
