Guide to Feb Fest 2012

Feb Fest

It’s that time of year again Kingston, and despite the mild weather, Feb Fest will be going strong this week.  Below is an outline of the schedule as it currently exists.  Sadly the lack of snow has affected some of the usual events that Kingstonians have grown to love.  The 24 hour Snow Sculpture Competition has been cancelled since there is no snow to build with.  Similarly, the Snow Maze and Ice Slide have also had to be shelved for this year.  However, Peter Vogelaar, Master Builder from The Canadian Snow and Ice Sculpting Team, will be here to create various structures for the public to view and access.  Additionally, Ontario Street will now be closed off to vehicular traffic and will display winter “toys” such as bobcats, snow plows, dump trucks, sidewalk plows and more, for children and adults alike to climb and explore.  Of course, in addition to these and the events listed below, there will be horse drawn wagon rides, beaver tails, Toast to Tapas and, running at the same time are Artignite and Reelout Film Fest.  If you’re bored this weekend, you’re not trying.  See ya out there!
