It may be strange to say this in Kitimat, but thankfully we actually have snow this year.
At least the organizers behind the Kitimat Rail Jam are certainly pleased the white stuff is on the ground.
Last year the Rail Jam had to be cancelled due to lake of snow but organizers are pushing ahead to run the event this year, on January 29.
There will be music, a food vendor and if enough snow is available a toboggan hill as well.
There just may not be enough snow for another feature, such as a snow maze that was built in year’s past.
“Still not been enough snow to do that,” she said.
Set up for the rail jam starts tomorrow.
Kitimat Search and Rescue will have an informational stand as well at the event.
Registration takes place between 4 and 6 p.m. for the event and it’s always a big draw for the region.
“People come from anywhere from Prince Rupert, Smithers. Some from Houston before,” she said, saying on average about 60 people usually attend.
“It’d be nice if people just came out and rooted on our Kitimat people,” she added.
