  • An ice elf in downtown Evergreen.
  • Three ice children hang out near Bear Creek by Highland Haven Creekside Inn.
  • The Grinch is sneaking around at El Rancho Brewing Co.

Ten festive ice sculptures are placed throughout downtown Evergreen, Bergen Park and El Rancho, courtesy of the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber President Nancy Judge said response to last year’s sculptures was so positive, the chamber decided to do it again. Ice sculptor Jess Parrish from Cool Hand Ice Carving returned to create the Grinch, the Abominable Snowman, a bear, a house, an elf and more.

The largest ice sculpture weights 3,600 pounds and is outside Bryan Caldwell’s American Family Insurance Agency. The other sculptures weigh 1,200 pounds each.
