This year, Cripple Creek Ice Festival event organizers created the theme Cartoons in Ice. We’re really curious to see what some of the ice sculptors will come up with!

The ice carvings aren’t the only things happening this weekend in Cripple Creek. There’s a fun ice slide, an ice maze and carnival-type games all made out of, wait for it, ICE! There will also be street vendors so you can get the perfect momento of your visit to the event and there’s also something extra for the adults.

So make sure you head up to Historic Cripple Creek for the 7th Annual Cripple Creek Ice Festival. The event is held on Bennett Avenue right in the middle of town. The event will start at 3:00 p.m. on February 14th and open again at 11:00 a.m. on February 15th and 16th and again February 22nd to 23rd, 2014. We recommend wearing a coat (or two) because it is outdoors and well, it’s about ice. If you plan on riding on any of the ice-rides, bring comfortable pants to do so. They will give you a sled, but who knows what can happen.
