Festival - Colleen Brynn Travels

IMG_1928 - Version 2 IMG_1933 - Version 2 IMG_1946 IMG_1948We 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!

      It was pretty chilly, but inside, they keep it nice and toasty. The caribou warms you up too! I have been to festival before when it was so cold I couldn’t feel my toes… that was a cold winter. I think it was -40C when we went.

  2. Dig those snow sculptures!
