Strolling down Cumberland Avenue…

on a beautiful Toronto wintry February afternoon looking at the process of making ice sculptures at Bloor-Yorkville’s Icefest. It was fun! Packed with guests, and hard to get good shots.

This year’s theme was “Wonderful and Whimsical” and took guests on a journey through a magical enchanted garden. IceFest transformed Bloor-Yorkville into a wonderland with fantastical sculptures including whimsical winged fairies, charming and adorable gnomes, oversized butterflies, magical flowers, trees and plants carved from 35,000 lbs. of ice.

The downtown Toronto neighbourhood just sparkled with excitement as Bloor-Yorkville IceFest introduced whimsy and warmed some of our hearts during this chilly winter. ^

      I enjoyed your video Peter! Thanks for sharing it with me. I was down at 2014 Icefest last weekend and must admit I liked 2013’s Icefest more. Better set up and better sculptures last year.

      Thank you Susie. It was remarkable watching those guys work away. They are very creative artistically and skilled in power tools. Must be so difficult working with ice and getting a sculpture to look the way you envision it.
