The Ikuri district of Tampere will be the home to an ice sculpture this year as well. The local sports club together with the area’s residents’ association organize an event featuring ice sculptures, music and audio, and lights. The theme for this year is from birth to death, and the trail is aptly named the Trail of Life.
A forest trail of about 300 metres will be decorated with some 20 lit ice sculptures. The trail is free of charge and open 24 hours a day for as long as the weather permits. The scultpures are made by the best Finnish ice sculptors and the lights are organized by Suomen Jouluvalo.
