At noon on Saturday, teams of culinary students from southeastern Michigan participated in an ice-carving festival at County Farm Park with a student from Henry Ford College coming in first place. Some of the designs submitted in the contest were of birds, elephants and a fish wearing fishnet leggings. 

The event, now in its second year, was hosted by the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission as part of its Winter Fun Fest, which will continue until Feb. 18. Attendees drank hot chocolate and young children participated in arts and crafts activities.

According to MLivethe event was organized as a competition, whereas last year, it was only an art show. Students from Henry Ford College came in first and third place, while a student from Oakland Community College came in second.

Other events and programs scheduled for the Winter Fun Fest are family-oriented. They include a talk on how to identify animal tracks in the snow, a hike — or short walk — for toddlers and their parents, a day of ice-fishing and a daddy-daughter dance.
