Titanic Museum Attraction Prepares for World-Class Ice Carving Competition Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011
World-class professional ice sculptors from around the globe will compete at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. this month as part of the museum’s amazing kick-off to 2011.
The Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge will host the outdoor event with a major ice carving competition on Saturday, Jan. 22 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Due to anticipated interest, visitors are advised to arrive early for the best views to watch all the ice carving action.
“This exciting one-day event will be produced by Titanic Pigeon Forge under the auspices of the National Ice Carving Association,”
“Visitors will be invited to come to Titanic’s outdoor staging center and watch professional and amateur sculptors turn 250-pound blocks of ice into frozen works of art. Kids and parents can view sculptures in progress, talk to the artists and learn the secrets of championship ice carving from the most accomplished ice artists in the entire world.”
Professionals and amateurs will compete for prize monies ranging from $500 to $2,000. The official NICA Judging Panel will announce the competition winners and award prizes at 3 p.m.
“After watching these artists at work, people will want to stick around to see if their favorite sculptor is the big-prize winner,” Joslyn said.
Although it has been open less than a year, the Titanic Museum attraction already is recognized as one of the Great Smoky Mountain Region’s top attractions, and draws approximately 100,000 visitors each and every month.
“As we begin 2011, Titanic Pigeon Forge is locking-in exciting, seasonal events to add fresh, new excitement to the already super-charged museum attraction,”
