Several large ice sculptures began to show the effects of the unseasonably mild temperatures Saturday afternoon at the annual Knickerbocker Ice Festival at Rockland Lake State Park.
Still, people were amazed as they walked past the incredible works of art carved from blocks of ice which included a wolf, an octopus and a horse-drawn wagon.
Many people took to hiking around the lake while learning some of the park's history from signs posted along the trail. Nearby, children climbed on large piles of snow in the event's Igloo Village while others formed blocks out of the snow and built their own.
There were sponsor tents shaped like an ice cave, an art show and many games available for families during the event which also runs tomorrow from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
