Sunrise Festival 2011: Fireworks and northern lights

Inuvik’s sunrise festival happened on Saturday night. People bundled up and brought their families to the golf course for a massive fire and some fireworks.

These photos are included in a gallery at CBC.ca/north which you can see here.

With northern lights appearing, people were not disappointed!

  5. They come
    Sometime
    Dancing
    In the burn of sunlight
    In the green hue of Northern skies
    In the sparks of the fires
    To show their bony fanged faces
    And remind us
    Gently
    That more is to come
