I had a very hard time coming with with a concept for this contest - usually I have ideas of what I want to build for contests- but run out of time/skill to do it. I kept trying to build like the LEGO villages - buildings/vehicles that had some strong nostalgic value to me - but couldn't really find anything. So I decided to go back to square one and focus things I really enjoyed in winter - not buildings or cars - but the out doors.

I present the Winter Festival: Celebration of outdoors fun.

1) Fresh waffles (or Beaver Tails) out in the cold outside. Nothing like pipp'n hot snack with hot chocolate after a day of playing outside
2) The skating rink - man made or preferably natural - skating is like floating on clouds. but with ginsu knives strapped to your feat.

3) The crankity old man that rents out the skates - in case you didn't have your own
4) Ice sculptures! Cause in Canada, it's cold enough to actually have them outside (at least it used to be).

Pacman? no no no. That's Cap-man. an uncopywrited  character who gets chased around by spirits.

Very nice work! My initial idea was actually an ice rink, much bigger than the one in the Winter Bakery, but you've pulled it off. I also like the idea of having outdoor activities.
