Intricate ice sculptures are coming to Reston Town Center’s outdoor skating rink at the inaugural Ice-travaganza event tomorrow (Saturday).

The event, which is free and open to all, will also include a live carving demonstration, hot chocolate, s’mores, a photo booth and a DJ, according to event organizers.

“We created Ice-travaganza to provide a fun and engaging winter activity at RTC similar to the many events we host here in the warmer months. Our ice rink provides a perfect backdrop for this new event,” said Sapna Yathiraj, marketing director for Boston Properties, which owns the center.

The inaugural event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. It begins with complimentary Ben & Jerry’s hot chocolate, a s’mores station and a live DJ. An ice skating performance is slated for 1:15, followed by a 30-minute ice-sculpting demonstration at 2 p.m. Another performance is slated for 3:15 p.m.

The ice skating pavilion reopened in November after undergoing renovations. Other renovations to RTC’s public areas are ongoing. The fountain plaza is expected to be completed in February. RTC plans to turn on the fountain in the spring.
