    I am a total non Canadian when it comes to winterlude. Too darn cold for me. Plus I hate crowds and parking is a nightmare.

    I love the ice sculptures that they do, they’re amazing. I’m actually more of a summer person so maybe sand sculptures would be better for me 😉 but I well remember admiring ice sculptures that were used as decoration at various official events, beautiful.
