(Quad Cities) – The courtyard on 2nd Street between Brady and Main in downtown Davenport will be transformed into a winter wonderland on Sunday, February 17th during the first-ever Icestravaganza. Icestravaganza has been rescheduled after being initially postponed due to inclement weather.

The free event will include horse-drawn carriages, an ice skating rink, live music, a “Diamond in the Ice” competition, children’s stories and art stations. Icestravaganza will also feature a new shopping experience with unique items from Handmade City and downtown Davenport vendors, showcased high above the Mississippi River in the sky bridge.

An “ice science” display will demonstrate the experimental unveiling of an ice-powered car; professional ice carvers will create works of art out of 400-pound blocks of ice and adults can register at Necker’s Jewelers for a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree in the “Diamond on the Ice” competition. A limited number of ice skates will be available at no charge.
