What’s cooler than an ice sculpture? A 300-pound block of ice transforming into an ice sculpture before your very eyes! The Rosen Plaza is hosting Iced Out, its 4th Annual Iced Sculpture Competition on Monday, December 16 at 6 p.m. by the poolside. If you’re looking for a free and exhilarating winter event that contributes to a good cause, then search no more.
The Ice Carving Competition
Orlando’s top chefs compete in a Food Network-style ice carving competition to win the hearts of a judge panel and the audience. They have 90 minutes to create a holiday masterpiece with only their chainsaw, icepick, and imagination. Each year, Rosen continues to add a twist to the competition. Last year, the chefs had to also decorate a cake that complimented their ice sculpture. You’ll have to come out to this year’s event to see what curve ball the competition throws next.
Additional Event Activities
While the ice chips are flying, this event offers a variety of activities for spectators to enjoy. The ’39 Poolside Bar & Grill offers gourmet food for the whole family and specialty cocktails for adults. Because cake decorating was part of the competition last year, everyone savored free cake samples courtesy of Rosen Shingle Creek’s Executive Pastry Chef.
Iced Out is the perfect opportunity to bask in thousands of holiday lights and jam out to your favorite holiday tunes. For the younger ones, keep them entertained with face painting and hanging out with Santa’s elves. And don’t forget, there is a photobooth to capture the fun.
Canine Companions for Independence
The event will donate 10% of proceeds to Canine Companions for Independence®—a nonprofit organization that provides highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities. It costs about $60,000 to train and give away a service dog to an owner in need. However, CCI raises funds to provide assistance dogs free of charge. Rosen is proud to partner with this great cause, especially during the holiday season.
