First Night State College is well known for having one of the largest displays of ice sculpture in Pennsylvania. Our team of ice sculptors erect large ice walls on the 100 block of South Allen Street and carve them into a fantastic array of beasts, people, and monuments. No visit to First Night State College is complete without checking them out and taking a photo or two.
This year the Dinosaur is sponsored by State College Framing Company & Gallery and the Wishing Well is sponsored by Penn State Federal Credit Union.
Our Ice Slide sponsored by PNC Bank – especially popular with children – is located in Sidney Friedman Park.
The display is only temporary, however. Our giant ice sculptures come down at 6:00 pm on New Year’s Day, unless Mother Nature melts them sooner.
