Few NYC scenes are as beautiful as Central Park in the winter. Cue the Central Park Conservatory’s sixth annual ice sculpting festival which is happening on February 11. Artists from Okamoto Studios are taking the park by storm with chisels, electric chain saws and picks in hand to carve replicas of the sculptures in Central Park using more than 6,000 pounds of ice.
Once the sun goes down jam out at a silent disco (yes, that means a dance party with headphones on!) to ‘80s, ‘90s and today’s pop music. You get to choose the tunes--and the headphones will be color-coded by musical genre.
Make sure to dress warm and register early to reserve your spot!
