The iceman cometh to Power Plant Live.
That would be Bob Roberts, and what he can do to a 300-pound block of ice is the reason why jaws were made with the ability to drop. With chisels, chain saws and a welcome flair for showmanship, Roberts can turn frozen water into just about any shape imaginable. Sunday, at what is billed as Maryland Winterfest 2011, he and some fellow ice sculptors will be showing off what they can do all in the name of raising money for breast cancer treatment.
Visitors to Winterfest will find more to do than gawk at a giant piece of melting art, Roberts promises. People can have their names, or their companies' names, chiseled into the castle. Live music will be provided throughout the day by Joker, the Riverside Drive Band and Hurricane Kevin. Twelve local chefs will be competing in "Seafood Chowder Bash 2011," with winners being chosen by the votes of those in attendance.
And at 1:30 p.m., a group of largely amateur ice sculptors (meaning that, unlike Roberts, they don't make a living sculpting) will engage in a free-form ice sculpture contest.
