Sometimes when the weather hits below zero, it can be pretty hard to remember the magic and fun of winter weather. It's a lot easier to default to two layers of blankets and Netflix than attempt to brave a bit of cold. But remember, that's what Canada's famous for right? And as true Canadians, leave it to us to know how to have fun even when the weather is a bit more frightful.\nTake Edmonton for example, where the temperatures are well below the zero (-13 right now, actually). But the city of Edmonton has something worth bundling up for. Edmonton's annual Ice On Whyte Festival is returning from February 1st to 4th. It's a mulit-day event that celebrates the cold weather, ice, and was voted one of the world's top 10 best Ice Festivals in 2017 by World Atlas.\nThe highlight of the festival is a spectacular ice carving competition. Ten different teams from all around the world will create a masterpiece out of ice and have it judged by a famous panel. The result? Beautiful, breathtaking sculptures for visitors to feast their eyes on!\n@oldstrathconaembedded via\nSorry, did we not mention? We weren't talking about tiny fistfuls of ice and cute little figurines. We meant full-sized, bigger-than-you, bigger-than-life ice sculptures. Some of which frankly, are just a little too life-sized and realistic.\n@canadasbackyardembedded via\nIs that a life-sized spider-lady? Yep. Did I just start shaking? Yep.\nAmong other highlights of the festival, you can visit an eye-catching, Insta-worthy ice bar! It's the perfect place to pass by to try some ice cold shots of spirits or pints of craft beer. Or, you know, just grab a hot chocolate.\n@eservusedmontonembedded via\nNo matter what you get, and which sculptures you see, be sure to grab a picture! Tickets to the festival are $7 for adults, $4 for children and can be purchased here! They include access to all the attractions at the festival and lessons to carve your own ice sculpture. Just please, no spiders.
