Ice Festival

Posted Nov 29 2010 12:00am

How was everyone’s thanksgiving? We didn’t have turkey but we enjoyed a nice relaxing weekend that involved long naps, a lot of TV watching, walking and a ICE Festival :)

It’s the Gaylord National’s Christmas on the Potomac and ICE! show at National Harbor. It features 2 million pounds of hand-carved ice that brings to life Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, an indoor ice skating rink, breakfast with the Grinch and brunch with Santa, a Christmas train kids can ride, nightly indoor snowfalls, dive-in pool holiday movies, 2 story ice slide, a fountain light and fireworks show and 60-ft. tree lighting every night, gingerbread house making, carolers, etc.

Food posts coming soon! I haven’t been cooking much lately. I was either busy or lazy. ;)

Q: Have you been on a ICE festival? What would you like to see in form of ice?
