With record levels of snowfall this winter it’s hard to imagine any outdoor event that doesn’t involve a shovel and an ice pick. Well it turns out there’s more you can do with a shovel and pick than clear your driveway. Throw in a chain saw and invite some friends and you’ve got the 5th annual ice carving exhibition in downtown Kent this Saturday February 7th from 1 to 4 pm. The ice carving exhibition is exactly what the doctor ordered for anyone that’s suffering from the winter blues. So get out this weekend and cheer the Kent State carvers on as they try to defeat the Akron University students in carving the best ice sculpture.
