'Carve Out Hunger' raises money for struggling MEALS Program

Posted:

Plenty of people came together at Main Street Square Saturday to support the struggling MEALS Program at the Carve Out Hunger event.

But they were also there to have a little winter fun.
 
Surrounded by ice sculptures, crowds saw ice skating shows from the Rushmore Capitals Figure Skating Club, a chili cook-off and even ice carving demonstrations.

Randy Finch and his team from Ice Sculptures, LTD star in the show "Ice Brigade."

This was their second year in Rapid City, bringing people out to support the MEALS Program and showing them ice sculptures aren't just for looking at.
 
"The festivals that we do are great for these kids to come up, take their pictures with the ice, be involved, touch the ice and really see what's happening," Finch said, "and then also watch the sculptures being made."
 
In case you're wondering, the ice sculptures are very heavy: The Indy car they carved weighed about as much as a real car.
