I am finishing my Winterlude series with three days of posts, featuring the ice sculptures all lit up in the evening. These were taken on the final Saturday of the festival. This first one was the sculpture erected on behalf of the European Commission at Ottawa City Hall, with the 2017 torch behind it. This sculpture celebrated the anniversaries of Canadian Confederation and the establishment of what would become the EU.
This was the ice sculpture at one of the entrances into Confederation Park.
Nearby was the 150 sculpture, all lit up.
I also photographed this ice sculpture that I hadn't caught before.
Here we have the Vimy Memorial sculpture, commemorating the centennial of that battle, and weaving Walter Allward's designs into a Maple Leaf.
The polar bear was well lit up.
And here we start with the pairs ice sculptures. It was quite a line to get in here, but I wanted to see these sculptures under the lights. The colours changed gradually. I have more from here over the next couple of days.
