The 46th annual Festival du Voyageur came to a close on Sunday evening.

This year festival goers saw some of the coldest temperatures in the event’s history.

Extreme cold warnings were issued for days on both Festival weekends.

Organizers say crowds were slower in the daytime this year due to the cold, but it did help preserve the festival’s signature snow sculptures.

Organizers say tents were full for the night time concerts and activities.

Including for events at Fort Gibraltar, which was open for the first time at night this year.

Organizers say around 200 gathered for Festival’s first outdoor dance party in the Fort.

Festival closed out with the 44th annual fiddle contest, where musicians aged five to 85 competed for the top prize.

Festival du Voyageur is Western Canada’s largest winter festival.

Organizers say the festival is still growing every year.
