Our favourite ice sculpture at Ottawa’s 2013 Winterlude

We finally dropped by Winterlude this weekend for a quick tour of the ice sculptures, and we were totally amazed.

This year the National Capital Commission (NCC) hosted 26 carvers from 11 countries in its 26th International Ice-Carving Competition.

This was our favourite:

We know what you’re thinking: we picked the Ottawa artists as our favourite and we just so happen to host a blog about celebrating the city and it’s people. Well, we didn’t realize they were from Ottawa until after, we swear! And though this one didn’t appear to place in the top three – we think it absolutely should have.

What’s your favourite ice sculpture this year?
