Snowarama in Riverside making the most of winter

The first annual Riverside Heights Winter Carnival continued its second weekend of activities with a “3 on 3 hockey tournament” on February 11th at the George Jowett Recreation Hall.

While the planned toboggan races and snowman building contest were a bust thanks to uncooperative weather, the breakfast, hockey and supper events went forward as planned.

The hockey tournament had four teams of three. These hearty hockey lovers braved the freezing temperatures and had lots of fun doing it.
