Winnipeg is sometimes also known as Winter-peg because of its cold winters. Unfortunately in the winter we wake up to 30 below; sometimes worse; sometimes better. Winter can be hard with all the snow. At times we get tons of snow and times we get just a touch of snow. Either way we can have all that snow and cold but still have fun.
In the winter we might get a brutal snow fall but that’s when some people find out how kind some people are, a neighbour or friend can come along and help shovel or even do it. Myself – I love it, I get outside and get some exercise. My dogs even come out run in the snow and play around.
The things we have in Winter-peg are amazing such as every year in the winter we have the Winter Wonderland light show at the exhibition grounds. At The Forks there’re events almost every day. Some people even carve up some ice sculptures. All around there’s something going on. We just got to keep your eyes and ears open.
My favourite part of winter is definitely the sledding, skating, snowboarding and throwing snowballs. There’s lots of fun to be had with the snow! I love wrestling in the snow and sledding. With all that being said I hope winter in Winnipeg is a little less depressing. Remember to dress warm and have fun!
