Over the weekend I had the opportunity to go to Snowfest in Frankenmuth.
My family and I had been looking forward to this for about two months and it certainly met our expectations.
We did freeze but it was worth it.
Every year in mid-Michigan Snowfest is held and they have ice sculpture and snow sculpture contests from different schools and companies in the region. There were snow sculptures of Jaws, Dragons, fairytales and modern art. The ice sculptures were mostly magestic looking creatures and business logos. All were very impressive.
People from every part of the world came to see the ice sculpting contest where a man takes a three-hundred pound block of ice and carves it into whatever he desires. It takes a lot of patience and skill.
When we finished walking through the lanes of sculptures we ventured over to the Bavarian Inn where we feasted on a German appetizer plate, their world famous Bavarian chicken, breads, relishes and potatoes. There was so much food the children were taking bites from every plate that passed them, not to mention the endless icecream.
Frankenmuth is most definitely one of the best places to go on vacation if you are looking for fun, friendliness and good food.
