When most people think “talent competition”, they’re probably thinking about some American Idol-related singing contest. But when places like the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge thinks talent competition, they think ice-carving. It’s one of the most wondrous events in the Smokies pitting people with real carving skills to the test.
On the billboards and ad banners it’s the 3rd Annual Professional Ice Carving Competition at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge. The first two have been a rousing success similar to most of their big events like fireworks at Thanksgiving and the past year’s anniversary celebration. This year’s ice carving spectacular is Saturday, January 19th from 9am-3pm and chances are that it will be just as big of an event as it was the past two years, if not bigger.
You’ll bear witness to some of the world’s-most celebrated and decorated ice sculptors as they chisel 250-pound blocks of ice into fantastic designs featuring local animals and designs, and other popular images. This FREE one-day family event will take place on Titanic’s outdoor entertainment center. Professionals and amateurs alike will be competing for cash prizes.
The Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is dedicated to the 2,208 passengers aboard the Titanic when it made its maiden voyage in 1912. The museum in Pigeon Forge features over 400 artifacts that came directly from the remains of the Titanic herself.
