Fairbanks has been home to the World Ice Art Championship since 1989. This year’s event will take place at Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds from Feb. 14-March 31. The new location offers electrical outlets and shaded areas to protect sculptures from sunlight. Over 100 competitive artists come from around the globe to compete.
