This year it will be bigger and better with renowned Ice Sculptor, Victor Cagayat flying down from Auckland and sculpting four stunning ice sculptures.

This will be followed by a festive and fun night market which will include fire poi performances, live Latin guitar by Dr Sanchez, mulled wine, market bargains, fabulous food and the four ice sculptures will be lit up.

The ice sculptures at night are a sight to behold and with the fantastic sights, sounds and tastes on offer it will be a spectacular winter evening for people of all ages to enjoy.

Andrew Blackwell says “Blackwell’s is proud to have been supporting our community in many ways over the 140 years we have been in business. Sponsoring the Kaiapoi Art Expo is something we have done for 12 years now and we want to celebrate this community event by bringing some winter magic to the streets of Kaiapoi”

Mike Blackwell says “It’s nice to be able to provide something fun and festive for the community and we hope people of all ages will come down and enjoy it!”

Blackwells is excited and proud to be part of the change and progression Kaiapoi has been experiencing and looks forward to a positive and vibrant future for Kaiapoi.

The ice sculptures will be chiseled live outside Blackwells Department store on Saturday 15 July from 1pm.
