Yorkville will be transformed into a frozen Canada-themed winter wonderland this February

Ice, ice baby.

One of the things Toronto is good at is being frozen, which is why the city is home to several incredible winter festivals.

And as the new year begins, it will also mark the return of February’s annual Icefest in Yorkville.

The central Toronto neighbourhood will be transforming into a showcase of delicate, stunning ice sculptures using over 20,000 lbs of crystal clear ice. The family-friendly event’s theme this year is “Celebrate Canada 150.”

So look forward to lots of frozen geese, maple leafs, and of course, beavers.

The live ice sculpting will be one of the attractions on this weekend. There will be food, a ‘Maple Syrup Taffy Station’, and ‘Ice Kiddie Cubes.’ The event is a fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.
