FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Even though the closing ceremony for the High on Ice Winter Festival was Sunday night, there are still events planned for the holiday Monday.

The temperature should reach a high of minus 6 with the help of winds gusting up to 60 km/h by noon. The ice sculptures are now complete in Centennial Park and the ice slides are still open.

Other activities include free sleigh rides from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Kin Park and a free swim at the North Peace Leisure Pool from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Sunday night saw the annual fire and ice display end the event in a dramatic fashion.
