Sunrise Festival 2012: Fireworks at 30 below in Inuvik

Every year the community hosts a short celebration to mark the return of the sun. Tonight temperatures were around -30 c.

People held a large fire near the golf course and watch fireworks while sipping hot chocolate. This year was a big show with fireworks sending loud cracks echoing across the golf course.

Some people drove to Inuvik from Tuktoyaktuk for the occasion by means of the ice road.
