Ice Age park opening in Alaska

A month long ice festival in Fairbanks will be featuring carvings from the upcoming Ice Age 2: The Melt Down among its ranks this year. Yahoo! News reports that John Leguizamo, voice of Sid will be flying in to assist Gov. Frank Murkowski in the ceremonial ice ribbon cutting using blow torches on a stage of ice. The World Ice Art Championship is considered “a world-class competition,” in which teams “create intricate carvings than can be as tall as 30 feet and weigh more than 22 tons.”
