titanic ice carving competitionThe Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge will kick-off its first free, family themed, outdoor event with a major ice carving competition on Saturday, January 22 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., announces John Joslyn, Titanic Museum Attraction owner. Due to anticipated interest, visitors are advised to arrive early for the best views to watch all the ice-carving action.

"This exciting event will be produced by Titanic Pigeon Forge under the auspices of the National Ice Carving Association, Joslyn says. "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 experts."

Professionals and amateurs will compete for prize monies. The official NICA Judging Panel will announce the competition winners and award prizes at 3 p.m. "You'll want to stick around to see if your favorite sculptor is the big prize winner," Joslyn adds.
