2020 Wellsboro Winter Celebration Schedule of Events for This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 14, 15 & 16

At this year's Wellsboro Winter Celebration, 
adults, teens and children can sit on a throne 
made of ice as friends and relatives take their 
pictures. The throne will look like a castle and 
be just as big as last year's Old Man Winter Throne (shown).
The whir of chainsaws and mists of powdered ice will greet those attending the Wellsboro Winter Celebration this Saturday, Feb. 15. The three-day event begins Friday, Feb. 14 and continues through Sunday, Feb. 16 in downtown Wellsboro.

On Saturday throughout the day, 35 ice blocks weighing 5.25 tons will be carved into seven frozen sculptures on sidewalks in front of Main Street businesses and into six more during the Speed Carving Competition on The Green.

The ice events are free. People are invited to watch the carvers at work and ask them questions. The sculptures on Main Street and The Green will stay where they are carved until they melt away.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and ending around 4 p.m., four master ice carvers will use chainsaws to rough out the sculptures and smaller hand and power tools to do the detail work. The carvers are: Jeff Meyers and Shawn Eckhart, both of Cleveland, Ohio, Erik Cantine of Maryland and Paul Garule of Eastern Pennsylvania.

"It will take a little over an hour for the larger sculptures and under an hour for the smallest one", said Aaron Costic, president of Elegant Ice Creations, Inc., Broadview Heights, Ohio. "Because ice carving can be done in a relatively short period of time, people can stick around to watch a sculpture being created from start to finish."

The first ice on Main Street will be carved in front of the law offices of Ginn & Vickery, PC at 99 Main Street. The four men will work together to finish turning 2,100 pounds of ice into a six-foot tall ice castle throne. The seat will be four feet square in size and 27 inches from the ground. By 9 a.m. on Saturday, adults, teens and children can sit on the throne while friends and relatives take their pictures.

The carvers will work in pairs to create each of the other six sculptures, three of which will be six feet tall; two, five feet tall; and one, three feet tall. A block of ice weighs 300 pounds. Five of the sculptures will be carved from 1,200 pounds of ice and the sixth from 450 pounds of ice. Among them will be a reindeer, a snowman and a horse. The sculpting start times and locations are: 9:15 a.m. outside the Arcadia Theater at 50 Main Street; 10 a.m. at Bethany's Jewelers at 84 Main Street; 1 p.m. at Indigo Wireless outside the Deane Center at 100 Main Street; 1:45 p.m. at Oregon Hill Winery at 87½ Main Street; 2:30 p.m. at Senior's Creations at 75 Main Street; and 3:15 p.m. in front of the Café 1905 window at Dunham’s Department Store at 45 Main Street.

The Speed Carving Competition on The Green includes three separate 20-minute heats to determine whether Meyers, Eckhart, Cantine or Garule will earn bragging rights as the one who creates the best ice masterpieces. The heats will be at 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. on The Green. The MC will pick different people from the audience to be the judges for each heat.

Two of the Elegant Ice carvers will compete in the first heat and the other two in the second heat. The winners will go head-to-head in the third heat. The four men will create six different ice masterpieces using a 300-pound ice block per sculpture.
