When in Maine, right.  It is the winter season, so let’s have an Ice Festival.

This Saturday it is Belfast’s turn. Billed as a safe and fun way to get out of the house this winter, it’s the Ice Festival.  A first for Belfast this year.

Take a stroll through downtown Belfast this Saturday between Noon and 10 p.m.  Visit all the ice sculptures that will be all over the downtown area. What’s an ice festival without an ice bar.  Or two.  Stop for a drink at one of the two ice bars.
