Rock On Ice was commissioned again for 2018 to create a magical ice experience in Frankenmuth, Michigan – this year was no exception! If you love gnomes, then check out this enormous 105 block ice display for Zehnder’s annual Snowfest.
The total ice sculpture scene was 30 feet long and 12 feet tall.
There were 6 carvers that helped create the village where visitors look for gnomes carved in all the different ice sculptures. The display took over over two weeks to complete. (As the saying goes, gnome wasn’t built in a day.)
This sign greets you to the Bavarian village where you are asked to find the gnomes.
The gnome village.
The spectacular clock tower…wow! (Greg Butauski is not a gnome.)
Gnome is where the heart is.
Ice news desk with color logo…another gnome!
The Bavarian village complete with lights. (If you are curious, there were 23 gnomes to find.)
Many thanks to the ice carvers who made this amazing display happen: Titus Arensberg, Jeff Petercsak, Michael Stoddart, Matthew Stoddart, Jason Bartlett, and Greg Butauski. (Concept by Dean Murray.)
