Yellowknife’s Snowking Festival kicks off with castle opening

The 21st Snowking Winter Festival will kick off with the opening of the Snowcastle on Yellowknife Bay Tuesday afternoon.

Festival organizers will mark the occasion with a door-cutting ceremony at 12:15pm, which the public is invited to attend.

The door will be carved through a metre-thick wall of snow, launching a month of concerts, films and performances.

Construction crews began work in early January after ice was harvested from the lake late last year. A team of carvers recently put the finishing touches on the castle’s walls.
