Plenty of growth and changes to WinterFest over the years

WinterFest replaced the Family Fun Day (1990-2002) of former years in 2003.

These pictures were submitted by the Sylvan Lake and District Archives Society as part of a series celebrating the society’s 20 years of existence this year.

WinterFest replaced the Family Fun Day (1990-2002) of former years in 2003. Several events were added: Kiddie Parade, free donkey rides, human curling, a Ôpotato gun artillery demonstration’ and a hockey game between the Sylvan Lake Firefighters and Z99/CKRD employees. Sleigh rides and other events have been added since.

The Polar Dip was started as a fundraiser in 1990 and held each year as part of New Year’s celebrations until 2003, when it also was added to the WinterFest events.
