Eric Pfaff, of Lewis Center, Ohio, begins carving what would become the winning ice sculpture at the 7th Annual Fire & Ice Winterfest, which was held Saturday and Sunday in downtown Columbia City.
Brisk temperatures and clear skies made for the perfect scenario for the festival. Pfaff also won peopleâ€™s choice and mayorâ€™s choice.
Pfaff was stationed at the northwest corner of Courthouse Square midday on Saturday, using an electric-powered chain saw to begin his creation, which was a sculpture of a bear and a bull.
