Winnipeg residents get together to make slides for sledding and ice skating rinks.
Most residents choose the Forks, but there are those who prefer to spend time on Winnipeg's Assiniboine River.
This is not the first year: about 20 years ago, people living in the St. James area got together and made slides and skating rinks for themselves and their children for the first time. There are benches, chairs, and even Christmas trees so that the eyes always admire the beautiful nature around.
Residents of this area remember a lot of funny stories that have happened during these 20 years. They celebrated the New Year’s Day together, they lit fireworks, they drank champagne and of course had fun with winter outdoor activities.
"We see our neighbours more in the winter than we do in the summer," a woman shared.
She says that the children who participated in building skating rinks and slides are already over 30, and they can come here with their children.
"Once they have their own little ones, it would be great for them to come here and continue on."
