Winterfest 2018

Led by Nicole Gale (red jacket) a cadre of local kids and even a few mutinous members of Kenora’s 116 Independent Field Battery take on the regional reserve gunnery unit in an old fashioned tug of war during Dryden’s Winterfest activities, Saturday at Van Horne Landing. From ice fishing to dog sledding, Dryden residents took advantage of the bright sun to get outdoors and enjoy our winter wonderland.  Photos by Chris Marchand and Michael Christianson
