Ice Fest celebrates winter at North Coast Harbor on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Lake Erie may not freeze over this year. But North Coast Harbor is hosting its fifth ever Ice Fest on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with dozens of ice sculptures, an ice slide, scavenger hunt and character meet-and-greets.

The free festival coincides with free admission at many Cleveland museums, including the Great Lakes Science Center and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum that surround North Coast Harbor.

The fun begins at 10 a.m. and through Happy Hour at Nuevo Modern Mex at 5 p.m.

Ice carvers will demonstrate how they cut 300-pound blocks of ice into designs, such as a castle, fish or Cleveland Browns logo. (Hint: to create colors, they use gelatin.)

You can also take a shot with the Cleveland Monsters, pose with “Frozen” sisters Anna and Elsa and meet superheroes.

Last year, the temperatures topped out at 25 degrees. This year, who knows?
