Wow Wow Wow! It’s going to be an absolutely beautiful weekend! There are fun things happening in the city, like the 10-day Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winterfest kicks off in Borden Park and Pipon Village. It’s packed with family fun, including ice sculptures, folklore, bannock, games and more!

And if that’s not your thing there are plenty of other options like skating, snowshoeing, skiing down one of the local hills or just getting out for a walk through the town’s many beautiful trails. Watch your step as it might still be slippery after all that freezing rain earlier in the week.
