Ice on the Avenue back in OCC for 2nd year

       The second annual Ice on the Avenue promises to provide ice sculptures in Bancroft Park and the 2600 block parking lot, as well as in front of some stores between 24th and 28th streets on the weekend of Jan. 16-17.
       Public activities are planned between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., according to Seiko Tran, marketing director for the organizing entity, the Old Colorado City Associates (OCCA) commercial group.
       Scheduled features include a “giant castle made from 50 ice blocks with three interactive Kid's Slides in Bancroft Park,” an “ice media desk where 12 blocks of ice will be used to create an outdoor media set big enough for local newscasters to report the day's events” and an “interactive ice bowling alley (with working bowling pins and ball,” Tran said.
       The main sculptor will be William Sandusky, who took third place in the World Ice Art Championship in Alaska, according to Tran.
       He estimated that last year's event attracted 17,000 people to Old Colorado City.
