Ice Festival canceled due to cold weather

An ice festival planned for Central Park on Saturday has been canceled.  The Central Park Conservancy blamed extreme temperatures and high winds.

An arctic front was crossing the New York City region on Friday and temperatures were expected to be near 0 degrees with real-feel temperatures at -15 to -30 degrees, especially Saturday night into Sunday.

The outdoor event was supposed to include ice carving and live music by DJ's.

The event was not going to be rescheduled.

This is the second event canceled this winter in the park because of weather.  During last month's near-record blizzard, a Winter Jam was canceled after crews had spent nearly four days making man-made snow for the event.
