As a part of Winterlude’s kick off weekend, a large group of City residents took to Landsdowne’s TD Placecompetitors-are-hard-at-work-at-td-place-for-the-cracking-up1 and created 2,069 snowmen taking over the world record from Japan. The theme of the event was Mental Health Awareness with people being able to participate for their foundation of choice. Over 2, 000 people attended and while the theme is a serious issue, the atmosphere was fun as our fellow residents, reaching over many ages, participated in an age-old tradition of embracing winter in our nation.
