Big Wheel, Penguins and a Castle come to town

These are a few of the hundreds of penguins which are decorating the city through the Winter. The basic white models have been transformed into works of art by schools and community groups.

I ventured into my busy city centre today and it was amazing to see all that has transpired since I was on holiday. This big wheel is the first to be erected on top of a building and is really spectacular, especially when it is lit up in the evening.
The picture below shows the fairytale castle grotto, created for the children, and although it is a poor picture taken through a store window, I think it makes the castle look more magical.
