Margaretville's Main Street was transformed into a festive frozen gallery yesterday, thanks to the talents of the SUNY Delhi ice sculpting team. Ice swans, eagles, fish, and the various logos of local businesses were stationed along Main Street to slowly melt in the March afternoon. The event, Ice on Main, was sponsored by the Central Catskills Chamber of Commerce (a Watershed Post advertiser).
I stopped by with my daughter, Ruby, to see the evanescent sculptures before they disappeared down the village's storm drains. Ruby particularly enjoyed the art:
