Ice Sculptures

Ice sculptures make their dazzling return to First Night Boston! This year’s sculptures, themed “Wonders of the Frozen Ocean” will bring the animals of the icy poles to Copley Square. Sculptures will be located in the Copley Square fountain on New Year’s Eve, and available for public viewing from 12:00 noon to 12:30 AM. Additional sculptures will be displayed around Boston Public Library.

Ice sculpture completion time is always weather-dependent, so don’t be surprised if you see our ice carvers making some final touches in the first part of the day.

Sketches of First Night 2022 sculptures will be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
