I'm returning to the Winterlude series today. The festival also takes place over in Gatineau as well as Ottawa. Much of the activities center around Jacques Cartier Park, on the shore of the Ottawa River, where the park is turned into a big winter playground, with sculptures and slides. The Ice Hogs, the mascots of Winterlude, can be found here much of the time.
Carvings are to be found in along the sides or backs of the massively constructed snow slides.
This large Muskoka style chair was also there in the park. Tomorrow we'll start looking at some of the snow sculptures.
