Dinosaurs are roaming the front yard of a house on Laurier Street in Hawkesbury.  Pierre Brazeau decided the community needed cheering up in the middle of this pandemic winter and got to work building whimsical and colourful snow sculptures in his yard.

“I think we need smiles at this time,” said Brazeau.

There are dinosaurs, a giant spider and a pink alligator made of snow in Brazeau’s front yard.  The added points on the tip of the largest dinosaur’s tail are meant to represent the image of the coronavirus microbe that we have all become accustomed to seeing during the past 10 months.  Brazeau is pictured in front the sculptures before he added the colour.  His young neighbour Zoé Dicaire also sitting on a dinosaur’s back.
