Nothing last forever, not the Wicked Witch of the West (think Wizard of Oz) or ice sculptures.
These ice figures were created on Saturday as part of the Nashua Holiday Stroll, the city's major holiday event which drew thousands of people from the area and neighboring states. A few sculptures were still standing early Sunday; however, with temperatures in the mid-40s, their demise was imminent.
The sculptures were created at the event in front of Nashua City Hall and would remain there until all were melted.
Unfortunately, we didn't see most of the Holiday Stroll which included a 1/2-mile candlelit procession down Main Street from City Hall to Railroad Square.
That's because we were helping with traffic control as part of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The downtown area was closed to traffic and CERT volunteers, like ourselves, were posted on side streets to direct motorists to detours.
We hope to catch the 24th annual Holiday Stroll in 2017. Grenville captured this shot of the city's Christmas tree after this year's lighting ceremony.
