The first Livingston Manor Ice Carnival was held in 1959 at Scudder’s Pond. Forty years later, in 1999, The River Reporter captured this shot of one of the student sculptures that have come to form a centerpiece of the celebration. The theme of the event was “Back to the 50s,” honoring its founding decade, and this ‘57 Chevy was sculpted from snow by Livingston Manor High School’s senior class. The caption noted, “This model of the well-known ‘50s icon may not last as long as a real one, but it is definitely ‘cooler.’” This year’s Livingston Manor Rotary Ice Carnival is slated for January 21 in Rotary Park, and the theme is “A Snowy Day in the Woods.”
