Why this charming Ohio town’s ‘Frozen’ fest is worth the drive

Ice, ice, baby.

Vanilla Ice said it first in 1989, but for the past four winters, Historic Downtown Logan has been embracing the most slippery days of the year.

More than two dozen ice sculptures will be on display for the fourth year of the Logan Frozen Festival.

>>WORTH THE DRIVE: Walk through a winter wonderland at Hocking Hills annual winter hike

This free event takes place immediately after the Annual Hocking Hills Winter Hike. Needless to say,  you're going to experience the best winter has to offer, all in one Saturday.

>>MORE TO DO: Mario, Luigi, Pikachu among the frozen stars you’ll see at IceFest

Ice sculptors carving dazzling masterpieces, ice corn hole and skee-ball games, live music are just some of the festival’s highlights. This year, a giant ice photo frame and an ice throne will offer the perfect selfie spots.

The Jan. 19 event also features local arts and crafts, food trucks, local dining and even $1 tastings from the Hocking Hills Winery, Brewery 33 and Hocking Hills Moonshine distillery.
