Plenty of fun activities are planned to enjoy the winter weather

Winter can be a time for celebrations and community building, and Spruce Avenue Community League is determined that cold weather need not keep people away. On Jan. 18 from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, the league is inviting people to celebrate winter with them.

Activities include a horse and wagon ride in the Spruce Avenue neighbourhood, highlighting the historic buildings and houses from noon until 3 pm. They will also have free skating and skate rentals, snowshoes (sizes availability dependent on skaters and snowshoers), and outdoor snow fort building.

Warm up around the outdoor firepits and roast hotdogs, s’mores, bannock, or campfire popcorn (available for free while supplies last). Enjoy warm drinks and keep your mittens toasty warm. Indoors there will be a children’s imagination playground with foam blocks for building, Jenga and Connect 4 games as well as a mini carnival.  

Community league memberships and Spruce Avenue community signs will be available for purchase. Watch the league’s Facebook page ( for weather updates. Organizers will reschedule if the temperature drops below -21.If you would like to volunteer or have an idea for a winter activity, contact or
