Visitors take part in a snow maze Festival du Voyageur in 2007.

Finding a way through the Winnipeg winter will get a little more interesting next month.

The first-ever snow maze is scheduled to go up at Millennium Library Park on Saturday, Feb. 1. Organized by the library, the Winnipeg Arts Council and Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, Snowmazeing is a day-long event that features the construction of a giant snow maze that will house a number of public art pieces.

"It’s always fun to see involvement in public art, especially created in such a festive way," Winnipeg Arts Council executive director Carol Phillips said in a statement. "Our public spaces are the perfect places to engage the community with art, and it’s wonderful to see the Millennium Library Park being used year-round."

People are encouraged to bring their shovels to help create snow bricks. The large bricks will then be built up to form a giant maze, with panels of public art -- created by Winnipeg families over the holiday break -- mixed in among the frosty construction materials.

Additional art pieces will be available for viewing inside the Millennium Library.

The snow maze construction starts at 11 a.m. and goes until 5 p.m. The event is free to the public.
