The 2010 High on Ice Festival started with a bang on Thursday evening.

Local dignitaries, ice carvers, judges, and members of the public celebrated the night at Centennial Park.

Arts Council President Lisa Bush says it’s great to see all the hard work paying off.

Bush says the organizing of this year’s event pretty much began the day after the 2009 festival.

Now, pillars of fresh ice and snow are sitting at the park, along with a brand new five-run ice slide.

City Councilor Larry Evans has been observing the event since the very first festival, six years ago. He says the new slide is proof that the event is getting better each year.
