The Ice Bowl is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of Second Harvest of Northeast Tennessee. It is the brain child of Rick Rothstein. The first Ice Bowl was held in Columbia Missouri and the idea was expanded through his marketing across the country.
Warrior’s Path State Park began a winter event in 1989 that evolved into a benefit for Second Harvest and took on the Ice Bowl name. Winged Deer joined the Ice Bowl line-up in 1995, the year after installation and Steele Creek was included beginning in 2009.
