BLOOR-YORKVILLE ICEFEST 2016
February 20 & 21, 2016
The Village of Yorkville Park
Fall in love with Bloor-Yorkville at the 11th Annual Icefest taking place on Saturday, February 20 and Sunday, February 21 from noon to 5 p.m.
Inspired by Heart Month and the Valentine’s Day season, this year’s “Expressions of Love” theme will transform the neighbourhood into a magical showcase of crystal clear ice sculpted into iconic expressions of amour.
As February is Heart Month, Bloor-Yorkville will be fundraising with participating partners and sponsors in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. For a donation, children can look forward to “Ice Kiddie Cubes” with a surprise toy inside, and all visitors can indulge at the taffy station with proceeds going back to Icefest’s charitable partner.
On Saturday, February 20, the 15th Annual Sassafraz Ice Carving Competition will start at noon. Visitors are invited to the Village of Yorkville Park to see the action as blocks of ice are transformed into original ice sculptures, crafted on site by some of the most talented ice carvers in Ontario. Patrons can enter to win thousands of dollars in prizing by casting their vote for favourite ice sculpture between 2 p.m. - 5 p.m! The People’s Choice Sculpture will be announced at 5:15 p.m. that day. On Sunday, February 21 visitors will enjoy ice-carving demonstrations in The Village of Yorkville Park.
