The City of Thunder Bay is excited to announce this year’s extended SnowDay on the Waterfront event, presented by Ontario Power Generation, on the Family Day weekend – Sunday, Feb. 18 and Monday, Feb. 19 at Marina Park.

This year’s event will feature a temporary public art installation, Exposure, which is a unique and interactive experience for event attendees. Visitors can interact with the installation and play with light using a light source such as a cellphone’s flashlight or glow stick. For those who don’t have a flashlight or other safe light source, there will be glow sticks available.

In keeping with the light theme, other changes have been made to the event, including the hours of operation. The Exposure installation will run from 4pm – 10pm on both Sunday and Monday evening. Programming at Marina Park will begin at 4pm and end at 8pm both days. Other event elements include a pixel light wall, candlelit snowshoe trail, and warming fires. The Baggage Building Arts Centre will host a variety of indoor programming, and the Prince Arthur’s Landing Skating Rink will keep their lights on until 10pm both nights. 

Due to current weather conditions, the annual snow sculpture competition will not be a part of this year’s event. The event team continues to monitor the weather conditions and will make programming changes, as required.
