Look, up in the sky! It’s confetti, it’s snow, it’s… Igloofest!

Seriously though, don’t mix them up.

Plenty of stuff will be falling from the sky during the outdoor bash’s first weekend and temperatures are expected to dip to -20ºC with the wind chill.

The 14th edition of Igloofest kicks off on Thursday and temperatures are forecasted to feel like -11ºC with up to 5 cm of “light snow,” according to The Weather Network’s weekend forecast.

And while Friday is expected to bring eight hours of sunshine, temperatures are forecasted to dip to -23ºC with wind chill.

Saturday will conclude Igloofest’s first of four weekends with both cold and snow as it’s expected to feel like -20ºC with up to 15 cm of snowfall.

We’d recommend dressing in thick layers and stock up on toques, scarves, gloves, boots, and hand warmers before the chilly festival kicks off.
