    20,000 pounds of ice: Thousand Islands hotel to host event featuring ice bar | NewYorkUpstate.com

    Instead of fighting the byproducts of an Upstate New York winter, a Clayton hotel is turning more than 20,000 pounds of ice into a weekend of entertainment on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.The second annual “Fire & Ice” extravaganza will return to the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel Feb. 18-20.

    What to expect
    The resort’s riverfront patio will be transformed into a bar made entirely of ice, featuring lighted ice sculptures, ice benches for seating, an ice wall and live ice carving demonstrations.

    Martini ice luges will chill four signature cocktails, including the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel Classic Martini.

    Fire pits and heating lamps will help guests stay warm outside; inside the ballroom, wine and beer tastings and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Fireworks will end the evening on Friday and Saturday.

    The event drew over 1,000 people last year from across Upstate New York and Canada, despite temperatures that dipped below zero. General manager Todd Buchko said the event reminded him of the film, “Field of Dreams.”

    “If you build it, they will come,” he said. “Creating your own fun – that’s what you have to do in the winter.”

    The ice
    More than 20,000 pounds of ice needed for the event will be brought in from an ice farm in Auburn. The ice will arrive in bricks that weigh between 150 and 250 pounds before they are stacked, stenciled and carved.

    “Before you know it, they become works of art,” Buchko said.
    Last year’s ice bar event was one of the many highlights of the resort’s inaugural year in Clayton, which has drawn praise for its luxury accommodations.
    “There was a lot of demand for this type of property in this area,” Buchko said. “This is something that I think a whole lot of people were looking for.”

    The success has translated into more business for the village of Clayton’s quaint shops and restaurants, public docks, Antique Boat Museum and other attractions in the 1000 Islands region.

    Buchko said the ice bar event will drive visitors during the typically quiet winter season.
    “We’re not just a summer destination, we are a destination year-round,” he said. “It helps promote the region.”
