Fort Gibralter, home of the Festival du Voyageur in Winnipeg, Canada.

Fort Gibralter in Winnipeg’s Whittier Park on a frosty winter day.  The fort is home to western Canada’s largest winter festival,  The Festival du Voyageur, which celebrates Franco-Manitoban culture and history in the city’s french district, St. Boniface.

Soon the site will be filled with ice and snow sculptures created by international ice carvers.  On this frosty day large blocks were in place awaiting the artisans.
