Media Advisory: Designs in Ice will temporarily re-route traffic
Toronto's foremost ice sculpting competition and display, Designs in Ice
presented by Scotiabank, returns to Yonge-Dundas Square on Monday, December 27
through Wednesday, December 29. As a result, please note the following road
closure for the event:

Dundas Square Street will be closed from Yonge Street to Victoria Street -
Monday, December 27 at 7 a.m. to Tuesday, December 28 at 8 p.m.

Designs in Ice is three-day ice-carving exhibition and competition with a
22-year history in Toronto. The event showcases the work of Ontario's top ice
carvers, each chiseling blocks of ice into magnificent sculptures. The event
comes alive with each sculpture being themed by such topics as Lord of the
Rings (2001 - 2003), the Millennium (2000) and the Olympic Spirit (1999). The
event's popularity demanded the move to Yonge-Dundas Square, in the heart of
downtown Toronto, in 2003. Designs in Ice commanded two Festival and Events
Ontario Achievement Awards (2001 and 2002) and an International Festivals and
Events Association Pinnacle Award (2002).
