Ice Concepts Bio

 

From the stack of the blocks to the rip of the chainsaws, this is the second year that Ice Concepts will transform Carlisle’s Downtown into an Ice Wonderland.  During most of the year, you will find Ice Concepts’ sculptures as part of weddings, special events and corporate galas. This is their 24th year in business serving the Tri-State area, but sometimes they find themselves carving and setting up ice a little farther from their Montgomery County, PA location for special event requests. Ice Bars, Table Centerpieces, Seafood Designs and Wedding Displays are just a few products produced by their full-time staff of 6 in their 6500 square foot warehouse and freezer spaces. From backhoes to ballerinas, they never know what the next phone call will lead them to create.
