There is enough excitement to occupy your time all day long this Saturday, Feb. 6, as Keene, N.H., holds it's annual Ice and Snow Festival. Beginning at 10 a.m. various locations around the quaint town will play host to ice and snow carving stations. These chilly artists will have 5 hours to bring out their best in the frigid medium, as voting for Best of the Best begins at 3 p.m. As you stroll through town watching figures emerge from ice and snow, you can decorate cookies, eat s'mores around the bonfire, take a sleigh ride or bundle up and listen to several live musical acts. There's also a L'il Tot Snow Slide, Snowboarding Rail Jam competition, and many hands-on arts and crafts including ice art. Food vendors and city shops will be open taking care of the many refreshments you'll need as you actively move through the festival. For complete schedule take a peek online.
