Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic

Who doesn’t love Disney on Ice and creative art students? Salt Lake Community College Culinary Club students will participate in an ice carving demonstration as part of the ‘Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic’ event. The demonstration will be held on Wednesday, November 14th at the Gateway Shopping Center’s Olympic Legacy Plaza from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The students will carve Disney characters at the event, and the iconic characters—such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Disney’s princesses—will make special appearances at the demonstration.

“We were delighted for the opportunity to participate in this event and showcase our passion for all things culinary,” said Stephanie Callison Tanner, SLCC Culinary Club President. “Our three competing members can’t wait to roll up their sleeves and get carving.”

The three carvers include SLCC Culinary Program students Gary Manoukian, 36, Oscar Villalobos, 25, and Jerry DeStafano, 29. All three chose to partake in the demonstration to enhance their artistic skills and learn new techniques for ice carving. When asked why he entered the carving demo, Villalobos said, “Ice and a chainsaw, what could be more fun?”

The carving event is a kick-off for the opening night performance of ‘Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic’, which will take place on the evening of November 14 at 7:00 p.m. at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City.
