While ice can seem like a burden sometimes, it can also been seen as something beautiful and artistic.
Such picturesque displays can be seen over the next couple of days in downtown Niles.
The 7th Annual Hunter Ice Festival is this weekend. It's a free three day event featuring sculptures made out of 25 tons ice!
More than two dozen of the countries best ice sculptors will be on hand displaying their work and carving for spectators. There will be plenty of live music, food, drinks and lots to do for the whole family.
New this year is a full-size, working carousel made completely out of ice. Kids will actually be able to sit on it.
