Every city has its own customs and holidays. And the amateurs of ice sculpture have recently appeared in our city. This art is well known and spread worldwide. It was quite popular in Murmansk and the city government used to create huge snow sculptures all over the city during the winter holidays. However, there was no opportunity for the amateurs to show their art publicly. So that the ice sculpture festival «The North Fantasy» organized in December 1999 became an important event of the winter season.
There has never been anything like that in Murmansk. Citizens were able to observe the process of sculptures.The work has continued for several days and finally the judges estimated the art of competitors and rewarded them.
The first festival was the beginning of good tradition. And for 5 years nearly every winter the teams from different parts of Russia and the world come to Murmansk to take part in «The North Fantasy». The number of participants increases rapidly (in 1999 - 11 teams; in 2004 - 14 ). Annual competitors of the festival are sculptors from Karelia, Archangelsk, Vologda, Saint-Petersburg. Although there are some other participants from Sweden, Finland, Norway, even from Canada. Also the festival became popular in Japan, the USA, Poland. Despite being rather young, this festival has already had its own traditions, such as drawing: the spokesmen of the teams have to eat a glass of ice-scream at the bottom of which there is a small ball with the number of the cube. «The North Fantasy» is one of the greatest holidays in Murmansk. There was no it this winter cause of lack of snow.
