  1. Are the ice sculptures only there on the 31st? Are they going to be there earlier for public viewing?

  2. I also would like to know how long the ice sculptures will be available for viewing??? will they still be there Wed of this week?

    1. I heard from Boston Harbor Now that it depends on the individual property. Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, and the Seaport will be up for a few days, but the other properties will probably remove theirs within 24 hours after the stroll.
