The annual Burning Away the Winter Blues festival kicked off this year at the Robert Service Campground instead of with its usual parade.
Nonetheless, the March 25 event was on fire with over 100 people in attendance. Participants were able to write their winter blues on a piece of paper and burn them in the 20-foot-long bonfire, enabling them to welcome spring with open arms. After circling the crowd twice with some chanting and music, an effigy representing the winter blues was also put to the flames.
