This world-class event is North America's oldest and largest ice carving festival. Held in Plymouth each January, the Plymouth Ice Festival is a truly spectacular with multiple snow and ice events. Most popular, of course, are the ice carving competitions. Talented college students from local schools carve their sculptures live and they remain on display for the rest of the festival. For some active family fun, head to Kellogg Park during the festival to try your hand at cross-country skiing. You and your family will get a lesson by experienced professionals and can then try it around the park yourself.
Michigan's Only Educa
Three high schools call the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park (PCEP) home. The campus itself is over 300 acres, which holds four academic buildings and multiple athletic fields. The three schools operate a joint academic program, which allows students to take classes in other buildings, but each student has a specific "home school" they can play sports for and will graduate from. This means that most athletic programs remain separate, but most extracurricular activities, such as orchestra, marching band, and dance team, are combined. In total, the park has over 6,400 students, with more than 130 sports teams and nearly 100 clubs.
Art in the Park
With over 400 artists from all over the country, Plymouth's Art in the Park is the second largest art fair held in Michigan. This unique three-day event allows artists to display their work to the nearly 300,000 people that attend each year. With live music and delicious food from local restaurants, this event has become a huge extravaganza. It is no wonder that AAA Magazine voted it one of the "Gems of the Great Lakes" and it consistently continues to rank as one of the country's top art fairs year after year.
