Ice Sculptures in Fort St. John

While on holidays just recently, we took a trip to Fort St. John, British Columbia, to see some ice sculptures that had been carved a week or so before at the Winter Festival.  As you can see, it was a gorgeous day!  

My favourite, the Buddha, stands about 10 feet tall.

The Maple leaf was about 4 feet tall.

Below is a great ice slide being totally enjoyed by kids at the park :) 

Below is a life size cat.

 Quite a few statues were 3 to 5 feet tall.
The arms and hands below were about 16-18 inches tall.  You could sit in this sculpture--on the other side.

The statues on bases like above and below, were about 3-4 feet tall.

Very mild day, but I can tell you, I was pretty chilled after walking all this ice :)
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

  3. BRR, Nancy. I'm even colder now than I was when I sat down to read this. These are stunning, and many are beautiful. I can appreciate the time put into making them, since I've seen some made before. Thanks for sharing them during T today. They sure qualify!!

  4. WOWEE what a lot of creativity and beauty. Your photos are great and I bet it was an extra thrill to see these amazing sculptures up close and personal ... I even see a swan :) ♥

  5. These are really amazing--thanks for sharing!
