Sculptures Shaping Up for Festival du Voyageur

Sculptures Shaping Up for Festival du Voyageur

Denis Vrignon-Tessier works on his snow carving celebrating the Year of the Dragon on Saturday at the corner of Main Street and Broadway. The sculptures are part of the international competition in conjunction with Festival du Voyageur, which begins on Friday. Mild temperatures and a lack of snow this year has made it difficult for artists to craft their masterpieces. Snow has had to be brought in from area ski hills, costing organizers up to $20,000 in additional cost this season. (TED GRANT / CHRISD.CA)
