2015 Ice Fest at North Coast Harbor

2015 Ice Fest at North Coast Harbor was a three-day event over the February 20-22, 2015, weekend.

We knew we would not able to attend the fun daytime actvities at Ice Fest, since we had a very busy weekend already planned with Friday's PechaKucha Night Cleveland, Saturday's WebSigCleveland.org meeting, and Brite Winter, plus other family commitments. Finally, we planned to end the weekend with Sunday's joint meeting of Film & Forum - Cleveland/Cleveland Machine Intelligence discussion of the artificial intelligence film, Her. All really great events!

Yet, after seeing all fun activities online via @NCoastHarbor and the #IceFestCLE hashtag, we decided we HAD to make the time to stop by in the evening as we were heading to Brite Winter.

Thank you to all the sponsors of the 2015 Ice Fest at North Coast Harbor who made this event possible. We truly enjoyed seeing the ice sculptures!

We go to Brite Winter every year. It is a must-attend event. Held on February 21, 2015, this year's Brite Winter was bigger than ever! It had a record number of bands and art installations.

There was so much going on that night, no one could see it all. We concentrated on meeting some of Brite Winter's participating partner organizations. Here are a few that we want to highlight (see more details about these ands others in our tweets):

We share photos, articles, and we hope, the spirit of the evening, through our @sos_jr tweets and retweets. Particularly with the organizations mentioned, please take time to learn about their activities. Enjoy!

Thank you to all the Brite Winter sponsors for a great evening!
