We bundled up, piled into Saj’s truck and headed to one of Winnipeg’s main attractions, and probably the biggest event of our subzero winters: the Festival du Voyageur. The festival runs for some ten days in February every year, and you can enjoy everything from tobogganing, snow sculptures and maple syrup popsicles to live music, costumed interpreters, and caribou, a strong fortified wine served in an ice glass.
We went on a whim. It was a little last minute, so we didn’t do much more than admire the snow sculptures and drink the caribou, but it was still a nice, cozy evening with my boyfriend and my two friends, Colin and Claire.
Here is a little video I put together to remember the night. Enjoy!
