First we watched the finishers of the sled dog races. This was not the Iditerod; this race took place within 99-113 minutes. Below are a couple of still shots, then the next is a short video clip. The racers were yelling "Gee", "Ha", "Keep it going". It was pretty exciting to see the end of a race rather than just the ceremonial start of the Iditerod. Although we always go to the Iditerod start, which is scheduled for next Saturday.
Then it was on to the carnival rides. We had a blast ridding the rides. Who cares what the temperature was. Ok....it wasn't actually that cold. It was only 30 degrees, so it's not like we were being THAT tough. LOL
Snow sculptures. Beautiful, delicate, intricate, thought-provoking, and funny. I love snow sculptures. Blake loves them too. He almost touched one. I barely got to him before he remodeled one of the sculptures.
Here are some of my favorites from this year:
"The Big Debate"....Get it? :-)
I bet this will be the winner. "Shark Bait". I had to crop the right side, so it's hard to see that shark with it's mouth open...look close, but not too close. The details were amazingly intricate on all four sides of this snow sculpture.
Here is a picture of the carnival just as twilight started....pretty lights. Knick arm is the "water" and ice you see behind the fair.
