Thousands bundled up and explored the Valent-ICE festival in downtown Grand Rapids this weekend. Over 40 ice sculptures were on display around Grand Rapids.

The cold weather provided perfect conditions for the ice sculptures which went on display Friday and continued to be enjoyed by large crowds on Sunday afternoon. The carvings were highlighted by a large sculpture created by Michigan's Randy Finch and Derek Maxfield.

The 3rd annual Valent-ICE Festival also included special ice skating events at Rosa Parks Circle and a number of featured promotions by Grand Rapids businesses.
