It's easy to make the most of winter around Ann Arbor homes for sale, thanks to great local events like the Winter Fun Fest: Ice Carving Festival. Ice carving has a rich history throughout Michigan, and the Ice Carving Festival brings together college ice carving teams from around the state for a full day of competition. If you've never seen an ice sculpture created, you may be surprised by some of the tools involved. These teams will be using chainsaws, traditional tools, and even flamethrowers to create their works of art! You'll be amazed by the creations on display and the talent of the teams involved. This is a free event for the whole family, with refreshments available and plenty of fun activities for kids throughout the day.
