Snow & Ice Brings Community Together
Thanks to all of the groups, organizers, and volunteers who made Snow & Ice in Paradise 2019 such a success! The over 30 events included in this year's festival would not have been possible without our great community and festival sponsors. See the full list on our website.

"Pack the Truck" Community Food Drive

The end of Snow & Ice also marked the end of the Town's participation in the Regional Food Drive for the Community Food Sharing Association. With the generous donations from residents, contributions from Kids Kampus, Oceaneering Canada, Paradise Physiotherapy, Royal Bank, and a big helping hand from Sobeys Paradise, the initiative was a huge success.

Over the ten-day Snow & Ice festival our community rose to the challenge and fully packed the 26-foot, 5 ton truck, donated by Ryder to support the food drive, with non-perishable food donations. All of the items were delivered to the Community Food Sharing Association on Monday, February 11. Thanks to all for your generosity and support.
