The tournament is set to get a bit brighter, as this year will mark the first year that colours can be used in competitor’s sculptures.

The theme of this year’s competition will be “Land of Myth and Legend.”

Other attractions of the festival will include a snow sculpting event, an amateur ice carving competition, sleigh rides and an ice fishing derby.

Also making a comeback will be the ever popular ice slides.

According to Mayor Bruce Lantz, “this is a fantastic family event.” The Mayor also says he “would love to see more people coming from around the region to enjoy an entertaining and unique weekend in Fort St. John.”
