Every year, the city where I live holds a Winter Festival. These snow sculptures are created for the last weekend of the festival, right next to the King Trapper stage, where we go every year to watch my boyfriend's father compete.
Anyhow, the sculptures this year were the best ones I've seen so far, so I had to share them.
I didn't make these, I don't know how they're made, and I don't know who made them (or even if it was more than one person). All I know is that they're awesome. And that I got frostbite on my hand while taking the pictures.
The teepee is actually hollow, kids can walk right inside it.

There was also a castle, but that one's pretty popular with the kids; they climb all over it, so it was pretty trashed by the time I got there.
Funny, I never realized until I posted these that there's a bear standing on the Elder's right shoulder.
