The Inuvik Sunrise Festival was a big success with many turning out for a bonfire and fireworks, despite the -26 C temperatures. 

The festival is held each year to mark the return of the sun after 30 days of winter darkness. 

A new addition this year was the Ice Road Cafe, which served up warm drinks and snacks in buildings made entirely of ice and snow. 

Though it may seem cold in Inuvik right now, people in the community are looking forward to the midnight sun, set to begin in early May.
