I know I blog about my winter blahs every now and then, but this week I have an extra special reason to enjoy the season. Bloor-Yorkville’s annual IceFest is happening this week and runs until February 27. The theme of this year’s festival is Step Right Up! and will feature spectacular circus ice sculpture displays, events and demonstrations throughout the neighbourhood. This Friday is the official kick-off of IceFest with the arrival of the ice—all 25,000 lbs. of it! There are ice carving competitions, displays and lots of fun for kids, too!
