Winter festival!

This past Sunday was pretty mild weather-wise, so Dave and I decided to check out Buffalo's first Powder Keg Festival downtown. They built a world-record-breaking ice maze:

and shut down part of the freeway so folks could go tubing down one of the exit ramps (genius!!):

I guess they also had sports and booze and stuff. We were too late to go tubing, but we did get to check out the ice maze. Here we are trying out one of the many ice benches inside. It was very cold and our bottoms were soaked!

It was a really fun experience; perfect for easing the late-February winter doldrums. Everyone I passed was laughing and having a great time. Good job, Buffalo!
