This is something that my kids seem strangely drawn to, and to be fair trying to explain how people create carvings on a huge scale out of ice is a hard one to really get across, especially when the kids just think about ice being either in their drinks, or as the bed of a polar bear. So we’re going to head down to Canary Wharf tomorrow, get a little face painting action and see how much of the freestyle carving skills and flame dancing we can take in. Here is the schedule for the weekend, you can also check online at the official website here.
