High on Ice Winter Festival 2019 - Opening Night Schedule & Tips

Travis Fortnum



The massivley popular High on Ice Winter Festival is back at Centennial Park in Fort St. John this weekend.

Things kick off on Friday night and go through Family Day Monday.

Here are some tips from the City of Fort St. John if you plan on checking it out:

  • Dress WARM! Layers, toques, gloves, winter coats, and mittens are all encouraged
  • Carry Cash - some of these events have a cost associated with them
  • Supervise your children closely – This is a busy event, please ensure your family is safe while enjoying our many activities (specifically on the ice slides)
  • Be respectful when looking at the sculptures – the ice is very fragile
