It takes more than -30 degree weather to keep the community of Fort Chipewyan from celebrating the season of snow.

Residents young and old braved the blast of Arctic wind last weekend to partake in the annual Winter Carnival, joining in on the indoor activities that included a traditional wear fashion show and entertainment from visiting pow wow dancers, and packing into their vehicles to watch the outdoor lakefront races including sled dogs, snow quadding, motocross and snow cross.

The weekend wrapped up with a community feast Sunday evening at the Mamawai Hall.
