Every January there’s a full weekend of activities to celebrate the return of the sun! The sun poked its head over the horizon for just a few minutes for the first time on January 5th. So the festival is hosted the weekend following the first sunrise. From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon there’s always something going on! On Friday evening there was a performance by the Inuvik Drummers & Dancers, I’ve seen them quite a few times and I still find them so entertaining! I’ll try and upload some videos to YouTube and attach the links here. This afternoon there was a snowmobile parade, snow carvers and activities for kids in Jim Koe Park right in the middle of town. I took a few pictures before my lululemon-clad legs got too cold. I’ll definitely be wearing layers upon layers for the fireworks and bonfire tonight! Stay tuned!
Stay tuned for more Sunrise Festival Fun!!
