York Ice Trail 2020 is here – and the streets are filled with people trying to track down all 40 sculptures.
Sponsored by the York BID and organised by Make It York, the two-day festival of freeze is the biggest ice trail in Britain and it is a firm winter favourite.
This year’s theme is Fantastical Fiction and Fairy Tales and you can find everything from Star Wars to Spongebob.
There’s live carving in St Sampson’s Square from 12pm on Saturday. It runs from 10am-5pm today and tomorrow (Saturday 1 February and Sunday 2 February).
And there’s a world of Witchcraft and wizardry with three ice sculptures, shire horses and a fire pit at Middleton’s Hotel.
Here’s some early pix. More to follow. Enjoy!
Remember to check out our wonderful ice sculpture as you make your way along the #YorkIceTrail20 and why not join us for a cruise on the Ouse, sailing running every 45 minutes from 10:30am till 3pm at Kings Staith and 10:40am till 3:10pm from our boatyard @VisitYork pic.twitter.com/YFZgYYGUts
