Scene: Yorkville Gets Icy

Icefest 2014 brought some chilly artistry to the heart of the city.

WHERE: Village of Yorkville Park

WHEN: Saturday, February 22

WHAT: The ninth annual Icefest, which, as the name suggests, is a festival devoted to ice—or rather, to the whimsical, impressive, detailed sculptures that can be carved out of the stuff. This year’s fest featured the “Heat Wave Ice Exhibit,” which saw 20,000 pounds of ice shaped into things either not common in these parts (e.g. palm trees, dolphins, mermaids), or things only barely remembered in these parts because they’ve been in hiding for many, many months (e.g., the sun).
