INSIDE SCOOP: Titanic Rises at the Franklin Institute

All hands were on deck last Friday at the Franklin Institute! Carvers created an icy masterpiece to celebrate both the Institute’s Titanic exhibit as well as the upcoming Manayunk On Ice festival. Crowds gathered in awe as the 12-foot long ice sculpture of the Titanic took shape right before their eyes on the steps of the museum.

Rob Capone and Don Harrison under the direction of Manayunk On Ice co-founder Peter Slavin, carved the ship while dressed in authentic sailor uniforms from the Titanic era and amazed the crowd with their skills. These and other sculptors will be performing and competing at Manayunk On Ice from February 8-10.

Philadelphia’s only regional ice carving festival will feature an ice bonfire, customized merchant sculptures, a master carver exhibition, extreme ice battles, and more. If Friday’s event was any indication, the festival is sure to be a hit for all ages!
