The full schedule is out for Wood Buffalo’s annual winter celebration.

“We have something for everyone at this year’s WinterPLAY,” said Community Strategies Coordinator Arndis Bildfell. “For sports fans we have the Shootout on the Snye, the McMurray Sno-Drifters Sno-N-Shine, and Penguin Dash toonie swim,” states Community Strategies Coordinator Arndis Bildfell.

Fort McMurray’s downtown square will host its first concert on the Main Stage. It’s also the centre for the WinterPLAYGROUND which has free, family-friendly entertainment throughout the weekend.

“If you love music and entertainment there will be a tremendous showcase of local talent at Jubilee Plaza, along with cultural celebrations and ice carving demonstrations,” says Bildfell.

Events such as the Shootout’s Skill Competition and Urban Market have been added. The festival runs from Feb. 27 – March 1. A schedule is available online.
