family day at winterlude

This past weekend was a long one. In February we get one day off - the day is called "Family Day".

So yesterday, to celebrate, we went out for breakfast and then headed on down to the Winterlude Festivities. There were lots of child friendly things happening and albeit a little chilly, we still managed to have a lot of fun!

One of our favourite things this year was the impressive “tunnel” made out of over a thousand lanterns. It was made in collaboration with the Jinju Namgang Yudeung Lantern Festival, in South Korea. There was also a fun activity for the kids called “Ephemeral Art” where the kids got to make their own sculptures out of great big colourful ice cubes! The ice-sculptures were also amazing this year again and Lilah, of course, got her fill of hugging all the different mascots - which she loves!

Not to mention the beaver tails, hot chocolate and maple taffy. Mmmm - good times!
