Bethesda's Winter Wonderland
Last Saturday was the "Bethesda's Winter Wonderland" event with an ice sculpture carving, student concerts and even a visit from Santa Claus. I didn't get there in time to see if they used a chainsaw on the ice, but I enjoyed watching the sculpture putting on the finishing touches. It was in the shape of a giant snowflake.
After that, they had five different schools singing carols (one after another, not all at once). I stayed for the first two (Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Jane de Chantal) before the cold chased me off to get hot chocolate.
Veteran's Park was filled with people and there (mostly kids who were going to sing and their parents), it was great having the event while it was snowing, and the singing was good too.
