FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Weather the Fort returned to the Summit City Saturday. The 21 and over festival is in its third year. Around 3,000 people were in and out of Freimann Square for live music, cold beer, and even colder ice sculptures.
It all started when a group of people got together and decided the city of festivals needed a winter celebration.
"So we all got together and said you know what? Let's have some live music, some food, some drinks down here," said John Felts.
People like Janice Nirva traveled to enjoy Weather the Fort.
"I just drove down this morning from Chicago, and this is actually my second time coming here," Nirva said.
Others, like Courtney Krout, are a part of the show.
Krout is an ice sculptor and has been carving ice for the last year.
"It's fun. It's interesting. It's something different every time. There's different tools that we use every time. It's fun," she said.
Weather the Fort was Krout's chance to show off her skills along with other local artists.
"Anybody can do it," Krout said.
Felts hopes the festival will continue to be a yearly event in Fort Wayne.
All proceeds from the event will go to support Fort Wayne Turners.
