Of course, another major part of the festival is all the art on display, which luckily is back this year. Bundle up and explore some amazing snow and ice sculptures throughout the park. Feeling creative yourself? They’re also running a photo contest for the best ‘winterscape’ created during the festival.
So, you’ve got tons of options, folks! While it might be a little too cold for us this weekend, we’re definitely keeping it in mind as soon as Edmonton warms up.
