Alaska's Northern Lights - 2018

During our last night with the group, we had a farewell banquet dinner at the Pump House and then went to visit Fairbanks Ice Park with its outdoor display of ice carvings. This year, there was no international competition due to lack of sponsorship. Nonetheless, many of the single block and multiblock figures are still on display from previous contests. The main site is a large open field encircled with the statuary, but there is also a forest pathway adjoining the field where the art is placed under and among the trees. All the statuary is lit with LED lights of varying colors. Amazing artistry was demonstrated through figures from mythology, animals, spacemen, even a tiny submarine that you could enter and peer through the portholes.
