Cordova Iceworm Festival's Big Worm

The Cordova Iceworm Festival has been the best cure for the winter blues since 1961.  This festival brings together friends, old and new, through rich and diverse community events that celebrate our strength, history, and creativity.  With a new committee elected in 2015, we hope to revitalize the festival with a new energy while keeping the heritage that past volunteers of the community have instilled in the festival.  

Last year, with the help of donations from the community, we invested $5000 in a new Baby Iceworm.  This year, so far, we have invested another $4000 for new banners.  All of these things help contribute to a new energy of a long loved festival.  Due to the wear and tear of many happy years, the current Big Worm is in need of replacement.  It has been repaired year after year and is on the verge of completely falling apart.  The new Big Worm will cost approximatetly $12,000 to replace.  This is the highlight of the Iceworm parade and is enjoyed by all, big and small. 

Please help us continue the spirit of Iceworm and contribute to the investment of our new Big Worm.  Thank you for all your support.

Sincerely,
The Iceworm Committee
