The 20th Annual Salem’s So Sweet Chocolate and Ice Sculpture Festival took main stage this past weekend in downtown Salem. Even with the tricky weather, the ice sculptures that were installed were stunning while they stood.

Over the years, the festival has also evolved to include new app-based games with prizes, more ice sculptures than ever before, two nights of illuminated sculptures, live ice-sculpting, and of course, sweet specials and promotions at local shops and restaurants throughout the city.

Here are all of the ice sculptures from the weekend! Click here to view more in hi-res.
