The Arctic Winter Games kicked off this past weekend!
The 2018 Games are being held in Fort Smith and Hay River, with the opening and closing ceremonies both taking place in Hay River.
Last week, the brand new Hay River Recreational Centre was opened after a long construction process. Hay River Mayor Brad Mapes thanked the town’s residents for their constant patience.
It was announced last month that all athletic events will be free to attend, with priced tickets only taking place for the opening and closing ceremonies.
The 2018 AWG will run until March 24th.
