2009 Winter Solstice

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year. We only had 3hrs and45 minutes of daylight. There was a lot of activities that went on Downtown yesterday in celebration of the Winter Solstice and the 50th year of Statehood. Here are some pictures that I took during the fireworks display.

  3. The Ice sculpture festival will be on the 2nd week of Feb thru last week of March and no it's not part of winter solstice celebration. It's amazing how those people carve those ice, it seems so fragile and sooooooo cold.
