One of the events Chestnut Hill looks forward to every winter is Chestnut Hill on Ice. With the chilly temperatures outside it’s the best time of year for ice and in particular ice sculpting by Ice Sculpture Philly! This year over 35 businesses commissioned jaw-dropping ice sculptures set up outside their shops. Attendees of the event walked down Germantown Avenue stopping to look in amazement at each sculpture’s intricate details.

El Poquito's Ice Sculpture

The event took place on the evening of Friday, January 28th and during the day on Sunday, January 30th. The activities originally planned for Saturday, January 29th were postponed to Sunday with an appropriately timed snow storm delaying the event. The snow created a magical scene for Sunday’s event and people were bundled up in thick layers and snow boots. There were plenty of ways to keep warm with warming stations and restaurants serving up hot drinks and chili specials.

The Chestnut Hill Business Association put on a fantastic event which we sponsored and were very happy lend a hand with our crew setting up the ice sculptures. Take a look at the photos below from this year’s event!
