A little town up in the mountains has a winter festival every year. For the last 11 years I have been asking….no begging Mark to take me. Thanks to a gracious friend of ours that has a cabin in the town that he happened to not be using one of the weekends, I was finally able to see the festival.
After a long day of sledding, we headed through the town to look at the ice/snow sculptures.
I have no idea how long it takes to make one of these sculptures, but they sure were beautiful. The detail on each one was amazing.
The 2nd place winner was this port a potty sculpture. This was an interactive exhibit. The kids had fun pretending to use it.
Ashley is very lady like when using the ice potty.
Allyson, always the comedian, had a little trouble working it out.
Even Mark, reluctantly, took a turn posing in the ice toilet.
Ashley took a moment to give a bear a kiss.
The first place winner had this little cabin with several animals and trees around it. I would love to be up there a few weeks before the festival to see the people working on these things.
The grand prize winner was Sharlie, the lake monster with these fishermen. The expression on his face is perfect. I’m sure he has a great story to tell his friends about the one that got away.
