    Sorry I butted in OJ. Love the pictures!
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

      Not nearly as pretty as yours, but thought I'd share. I was also amazed at how they made these with heat and saws. Also how much electricity it took to keep the whole building cold enough here in TN.
      That's very cool. Thanks for posting the picture. I love Peanuts! I have seen lots of ice sculptures before but this was the first time I had ever seen them being made. It was fascinating. I could have watched all day if it wasn't so cold and crowded. Yes I would imagine it would be tricky to have ice sculptures on display there without melting! I am glad you got to go and enjoy it

          Those were all awesome! I wish we had some sort of winter festival in Windsor ... but it's so flat and city-like here ... and the weather is unpredictable.

            Very nice pictures!
            I've always admired those who are able to draw or sculpt and make things lifelike.

                    Thanks OJ, I really enjoyed these photos.
                    back in 1994/95 I went to First Night in Boston. They had ice carvings that were amazing. This was before the digital camera, lol. The theme that year was something like Aladin as the movie had just comeout. They had a beautiful East Indian palace, Aladdin and Jasmine, it was so very magical. My kids were about 10,8 and 2. We really enjoyed the sculptures and events. Lke you the crowds made it difficult with a stroller and a wheelchair.

                    Now you have me wanting to go pull out the photos.
                    Every day I wake up is a good one

                        I am glad everybody liked the pictures

                        One final picture. A full shot of the ice dancers, which might have been my favorite.

                          Love the ice dancers, thank you. Must be the Canadian Ice Dancers winning the gold?

                              What spectacular scuptures! Thanks for posting them OJ. I am always amazed at ice sculpters willingness to make such gorgeous creations only to have them melt away, sometimes within a day or two. If I went to that much work it would have to be in bronze and last forever!
