Are you looking for one action packed day of winter loving fun?  Wonderful!  Get up at the crack of dawn and set out on your “exploration”, with the goal of visiting all 35+ ice sculptures throughout the greater Twin Cities to create one epic day of exploring!

Are you hankering to sip some local libations and eat some local fare?  Great! Gather up your crew and embark on an “exploration” to visit all the ice sculptures hidden at local breweries, bars and restaurants and beyond for one of the “coolest” bar-crawls around.

Are you looking to slow down and get outside every day throughout the entirety of this 4-day event?  Perfect!  Pick and choose a few ice sculptures each day of the “exploration” and soak in the unique locations and neighborhoods that each of these ice sculptures are located on your mini-expeditions.

Are you looking for an excuse to visit some new establishments and areas? Or maybe you’re just looking to visit some old favorites over the course of the event?  Set out on your “exploration” to discover some first-time hangouts or old-time favs as you explore all the greater Twin Cities has to offer!
