20th Annual Hunter Ice Festival returns to Niles this week!

NILES, Mich. -- The ice blocks arrived this morning ahead of the Hunter Ice Festival!

Carvers will be hard at work today through Friday chipping away at the ice, then the public is invited to come and see the finished sculptures and other interactive ice pieces Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
