Festival of Ice
As the weather turns cold in early December, downtown Lewistown welcomes residents and visitors to celebrate our 24th annual Festival of Ice. The multi-day event begins on Thursday, as spectators watch chainsaws transform huge blocks of ice into beautiful sculptures. Hay wagon rides, live entertainment, street vendors, a 4K race and a variety of other family-friendly activities round out the fun. Scheduled events last through Friday night, but the sculptures will last as long as nature allows. The event signals the official start of the season, welcoming holiday shoppers into downtown shops.
