Igloofest: Photo Essay (Weekend #2)

Posted by Jer / January 25, 2011

Igloofest Weekend 2 Bravo Montreal. Even the intensely frigid temperatures this past weekend couldn't stop you snow-suited revellers from turning up in record numbers to Igloofest events. The festival broke an attendance record on Friday night and then broke it again on Saturday, and we had special contributor/photographer Shannon Heather taking it all in with her camera. Igloofest returns next weekend for one last winter blast of fun. As Shannon's pics suggest, you don't want to miss it.
