Snow sculptures tour at the Prince Albert Winter Festival

Now in its 59th year, the Prince Albert Winter Festival has been a long standing winter tradition in Prince Albert. And one of the fun things folks like to do is don their boots and toques for a driving tour of the snow sculptures as residents of Points West Living Prince Albert did in February.

Ukrainian Dancers Delight Residents of Peace River

On February 10, Points West Living Peace River welcomed the Peace River Muzyka Dancers to perform for residents.  The Muzyka dancers have entertained audiences with their colour and rhythms since the club’s conception in 1976.

The essence of Ukrainian culture is experienced through food, music, and dance.

The Peace River residents clearly enjoyed watching the dance performance, which was made up of both children and adults.

 “It is amazing what they can do,” said Sheila Antoniette.

Alex Siry was happy to come out and watch especially as one of the performers was his own grandson. “They are all extremely talented, I hope they come back again.”

As the performance was coming to an end resident John MacMillian stopped a couple of the performers and said, “You guys were really good. I hope you come back sooner than later.”
