Winterlude 2011

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 10:00 AM
Winterlude is currently on in Ottawa. It's a big snow festival that happens every year between January and February. It lasts for about 3 weeks and has tons of events, activities, you name it!


One of my favorite part (#1 favorite is skating on the Rideau Canal, looove~) is the ice sculpting competition. Sculptors from around the world gather to compete into making the coolest sculptors out of giant ice cubes.

I went out at night because it looks 10 times cooler with the colorful spot lights.

My favorite one of the bunch. If you can't see very well, it's 2 kids dressed up with boxes and pots and pans, with their reflections / shadows in the back as warrior and dragon in battle!

And of course, Winterlude is not Winterlude, without a BEAVER TAIL!

Chocolate hazelnut. Yummy~

Is there a winter festival in your city?
Have you ever seen ice sculptors live?
Which one is your favorite?
