The fun snow balls at Feb Fest

Kingston's fifth-annual Feb Fest


Kingston's fifth-annual Feb Fest takes place Feb. 3 through 8 – and it's bigger and better than ever.

Queen's engineering students will compete in the 24-hour snow sculpture competition against teams from St. Lawrence College and Royal Military College (RMC).

Queen's will also rival RMC for the Carr-Harris Cup Feb. 7 at 7:30 pm at the Memorial Centre (tickets $7).

The opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 pm on Feb. 3, followed by the Imagination on Ice show starring figure skating champion Kurt Browning at 7 pm. Other fun activities include acrobatic skiing and snowboarding performances, live music, free public skating and the Limestone Classic, a shinny hockey tournament with NHL alumni. Feb Fest is organized by a volunteer committee led by former NHLer Kirk Muller, Downtown Kingston! BIA, Queen's, Kingston Accommodation Partners, KEDCO and the City of Kingston.
