Kids can ride the ferris wheel, fly down an ice slide, zoom through the air on a zip line, marvel at ice carving demonstrations, or check out skateboard ramp demos. At the Putt Putt Pub Crawl, place some ice putt putt gold. Gaze in awe at fire performers and search for ice cubes throughout Delmar Loop, with $1,000 in coins spread out for revelers to find hidden around the ice sculptures decorating the scenery.
