The festival begins with an unveiling at the UPMC Pinnacle Throne on Friday, February 5 at 5 pm at the Old Courthouse on the Square. Volunteers across downtown will unveil all the sculptures including the Ice Bar at the Comfort Suites, where you can enjoy a hot or cold toddy, other drink specials, and appetizers for purchase.

With COVID-19 precautions, sculptures will be placed at least 20 feet away from each other. Guests are required to wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing.
