Looking forward to the holiday season and all your favorite seasonal DC area events? Then you’ll be thrilled to know that in just a week, you can enjoy ICE! at the Gaylord National! The Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center is transformed each year into DC’s own “Capital of Christmas.” This year marks the sixth annual Christmas on the Potomac, which runs November 15th, 2013 – January 5th, 2014. And guess what? 1 Beltway Bargain Mom reader will get to win a free family 4-pack of tickets to experience ICE, so keep reading!
This year’s theme for ICE! at the Gaylord National is: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. Hand-carved, colorful ice displays will bring Clement Moore’s classic American holiday poem to life in an wintery wonderland. Favorite scenes from the classic tale include visions of Sugar Plums and Saint Nick with his eight reindeer. Plus this year there is a brand-new bonus scene depicting “Christmas in New York City.” Bringing the exciting hustle and bustle of the Big Apple at Christmastime, and featuring the tallest ice sculptures ever created in the history of ICE! Children and adults will enjoy the festive fun that you can experience at ICE!
My family and I have attended ICE! at the Gaylord National the past two years. I can tell you firsthand, it’s a lot of fun for the entire family. You’ll experience breath-taking, colorful ice sculptures, 20-foot-tall slides, sculptures of lovable characters and the chance to see the artistry and product of dozens of artists and ice sculptors from Harbin, China. The frozen “Ice” portion is carved out of 2 million pounds of ice, and the whole process takes about a month to transform the refrigerated (9 degrees) 15,000 square-foot tent right next to the Gaylord Hotel, into the ICE! extravaganza.
