Fear The Rampage Of The Zombie Ice Hogs

The Ice Hogs are the mascots of Winterlude. While they look like bears, the reference is to groundhogs, which makes sense. Here they're doing photo ops in Confederation Park.


There are also some art installations in the park, such as this one.

  16. Wow. Looks very cold to me. I guess anybody can get used to the cold but at my age, it is something I strive to avoid. You have some very nice photography.
