Rockford Ice Sculptures

YOUNGSTERS ADD SCULPTURE TO CITY’S DISPLAYS­—On the evening of Friday, Jan. 13, youngsters build their own ice sculpture to add to the displays around town for the third annual Rockford Ice Festival. This super-sized smile, by Julia Ruppert, Delanie Riebschlager and Nick Ruppert, features anatomically correct teeth, with help from Delanie’s dad.
