Cold temperatures didn't deter crowds from flocking to Plymouth last weekend to view the 75 or so ice sculptures installed along downtown sidewalks. The 39th annual event was downsized this year from the usual huge sculptures in the Kellogg Park. Other family activities and professional and collegiate ice carving competitions were canceled due to safety precautions. The smaller, single block creations, however, attracted viewers and families on both Saturday and Sunday and was "pretty successful" according to JAF Entertainment President James Gietzen, who produced the event with the help of local sponsors who funded the ice carvings this year.
