Alianait Festival 2011 – Day Two & Canada Day in Iqaluit

We were back volunteering at Alianait for Canada Day.  Bought some tickets for the Duck Race that’s going to be taking place in support of the firefighters – yes…a duck race!  First prize?  Tickets on First Air from Ottawa to Iqaluit – round trip.  Fingers are crossed for another winning ticket!

We were tired out by the end of the day, so we didn’t get a chance to get out to the concert that night, but we had lots of fun during the Canada Day festivities.  Here’s some pictures from our beautiful day!

Arriving at the festivities...you might not be able to see it, but there's a LOT of people there...

Line up for the fry truck...and we waited the WHOLE time...

Bouncy castles...and lots of people mingling

So many kids...everywhere!

Mission: Destroy Canada Day cake. Mission: Accomplished.

  1. Obviously by the time stamp here, I’m still not sleeping. So….I’m reading!

    The pictures are fantastic! It looks like you guys had a great time 🙂 I’m still waiting on my fry truck.

    • Oh dear…you had as late of a night as I did. We need to find some better sleepytime drugs…

      We did have fun. Great place to celebrate Canada Day…and Nunavut Day is this Saturday…eleven years old, my territory is!

    • Poutine is a dish that originated in Quebec. It’s french fries with cheese curds smothered in gravy. The best poutines are the ones that use the squeaky cheese curds – they actually squeak when you chew them. And I have no idea why.
