Annual Niles festival continues through the weekend

NILES, Mich. -- There are a lot of activities on Saturday taking place in downtown Niles during the annual Hunter Ice Festival.

For instance, the Frigid 5K run starts at 9 a.m. It started in 2009, and this year, the founder Keri Pawielski is handing the race off to a nonprofit organization LifePlan. All proceeds from the race will go to help men, women, and families in the community.

Other activities going during the festival include the Multi-Block sculptures carving live throughout downtown starting at 10 a.m. and speed carving will be held at the Amphitheater in Riverfront Park starting at 7:30 p.m.

The weekend-long, family-friendly festival will feature an interactive ice area friends and family can play games like corn-hole, Ping-Pong, and skeeball.

 Five carvers created around 70 ice sculptures using 180 blocks of ice that have been placed around downtown Niles.
