Sean Leahy, owner of Full Spectrum Ice Sculptures, was carving an ice masterpiece during the Delmar Loop Ice Carnival on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2024. Sean and his team carved around 50 ice sculptures for this years event. The temperature was in the teens so the ice was safe with no fears of it melting.
