Winterlude's Winter Garden Snowscape

Community, Festivals

Join us as we transform Aberdeen Square into a glowing garden of sculpted snow lanterns. Each week members of the community will expand the garden by building simple snow sculptures. All are welcome to add to the garden during scheduled build times. Molds such as buckets, and boxes will be used to create castles, creatures and more. Sculptures will be lit  with candles every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening throughout Winterlude.
