Celebrating winter, Saskatchewan style
In Saskatchewan, we don’t just endure winter, we celebrate it. Temperatures may have dropped, but a practical coat and good pair of mitts take care of that. Fresh snow lays thick on the ground, the crisp, clean air colours our cheeks and sun-filled big skies make winter a great time to celebrate.
Winter festivals take place in every corner of the province from December through March. Festivals often include ice sculpture competitions, art and craft shows, sleigh rides, skating, hockey and curling tournaments, bonfires and dances. You may even come across a King Trapper event where you can watch competitors try to outdo one another at a variety of outdoor skills.
