Winterlude in Québec

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.

You can see the full set of the pic­tures taken dur­ing Win­ter­lude 2010 here.

    I think there is some like the same show in Oslo within a week or so — I’ll keep you posted :-)
