Legend has it that snowmen once ruled the world during the last ice age. Yet still, they gather each year in the dead of winter to plot their return. We need to build a brigade of friendly snowpeople to thwart their plans and save all of humanity!
In partnership with Winterlude, Alterna Savings Crackup and the City of Ottawa, Snowmania is a show of snow, and a celebration of one of our greatest pastimes – building snowmen. The Glebe’s annual winter festival boasts giant snow sculptures, including one commemorating the late Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip, several family-friendly events throughout Winterlude. But we are encouraging the public – family, friends, kids and students to build their own snowmen and share their creations online using the hashtag #OttSnowmania and #IntheGlebe.
