True global travel may have to wait but you can see the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Statue of Liberty, Sagrada Familia, the Sphinx, Big Ben and even Chichen Itza at Bloor-Yorkville Icefest – an amazing frozen world of 50 iconic landmarks sculpted from over 68,000 pounds of ice. Adding extra sparkle to Toronto’s glittering Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood, this self-guided tour titled “A Trip Around the World” is taking place both in-person and virtually. Now, patrons can visit iconic destinations all while remaining safely at home or while socially distancing.
The Bloor-Yorkville BIA is presenting their 16th annual Icefest from March 12–14 and have chosen Second Harvest to be their charity partner, warming up the chilly days of winter by raising funds to help bring healthy food to people in need. There’s even a Second Harvest ice sculpture that beautifully showcases our food rescue work.
If you’re in the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood, visit the Second Harvest ice sculpture, take a selfie, tag, and follow @SecondHarvest and @Nespresso.ca on Instagram along with #Icefest21 and you could win a Nespresso Vertuo machine and 50 coffee capsules! Prize courtesy of Nespresso.
