This weekend, Franconia Sculpture Park will host its annual Valentine’s Day Hot Metal Pour, a celebration open to sweethearts, families, BFFs, and any other combo of affection. Before the event, participants will make molds from sand. Then on Saturday local artists, led by master sculptor and educator Tamsie Ringler, will melt down old furnaces and other recycled material to be poured into a 150-pound ladle that will be used to fill the molds. Watch them create art live. The grounds, which boasts over 120 sculptures, will also be open to stroll. Snack on treats from Nordic Waffles, bring a hot drink in a thermos, and stay warm with visits to the bonfire.
