8 Incredible Snow Sculptures at the Kenora Winter Carnival

8 Incredible Snow Sculptures at the Kenora Winter Carnival

One of the more intricate entries at the snow sculpture competition at the 2015 Kenora Winter Carnival



Which Snow Sculpture Would You Choose as the 2015 Winner?

The cold wind did not deter the artists from carving these snow sculptures for the Kenora Winter Carnival. 

For me, the highlight of the winter carnival is seeing the snow sculptures that line the Harbourfront in Kenora. 8 artists or groups worked hard to carve these beautiful sculptures for the snow sculpting competition. With the theme being wildlife this year, many carved out hearty Canadian animals that live in Northwest Ontario. Moose, deer, bear, otters and wolves all wander our forests and swim in our lakes. 

I really have to give these carvers extra credit this year. In the few weeks, they had to carve, the biting wind howled strongly off the lake, making it bitterly cold. So thank you to all the people that put in the effort this year, one can't help but smile as you pass the sculptures each day.

If you were a judge, which one would you choose?

Please share with your friends to let the carvers know you like their sculptures! Most are not artists by trade and I believe they deserve the recognition. Thanks!
