Ice Carving on the Plaza

We have just come through record-breaking cold temperatures in Santa Fe but now the sun is shining, the skies are blue, and temperatures will reach 36 degrees today!  It will still be plenty cold enough for guests of The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn to enjoy the upcoming Ice Carving Contest on the Santa Fe Plaza. 

The event will take place on Monday, February 21 from noon to 4:00, in conjunction  with the Santa Fe Winter Fiesta. Competitors will be given a single block of ice to carve, with the first prize winner getting $500, second place receiving $250, and third place getting $150.  All prize monies will be donated the winners' favorite charity, in their name.  If you are an ice-carver, you may contact the organizers of the Santa Fe Winter Fiesta to register.  If not, the event great fun for spectators.  Grab a cup of hot chocolate from the Haagen-Dazs on the corner of the Plaza and head over to be part of the excitement.

The Santa Fe Winter Fiesta is a 10 day event, running from 2/18 - 2/27, filled with special winter activities and special deals being offered by local businesses.  The skiing will be fabulous and there will be much fun to be had in Santa Fe during this time period.
