On a cold, cold day, I crossed the bridge and went to check out Winterlude’s celebrations in Québec. Jacques Cartier Park had been turned into a winter amusement park, complete with the ubiquitous beavertails’ snack booths and giant snow slides.
Ottawa has ice sculptures, Québec has giant snow ones. The theme of the national Snow Sculpture Competition for this year was “winter fun”. Each team was given a huge 3.7 m x 4.9 m block of snow and beautiful winter themed art pieces were created.
