Volunteer for the annual BURN ON THE BAY; In memoriam

Burners and friends of burners of YK! Our annual Burn on the Bay approaches. Please feel free to SHARE this email with anyone you might think would be interested.

The YK Burners want to take a moment to remember to Amy O'Connor, our friend who suddenly passed last fall. Her dedication and love she so freely gave to our annual Burn is greatly missed. She won't be forgotten. We dedicate this year's Burn on the Bay, Rebirth, in her memory. Please join us for the bonfire she loved to help create. (Saturday, March 28, 8:30 pm, across from the Castle.)

A Second Public Art Pop-Up Display In Yellowknife

~~Yellowknife still loves its public art. Come see a new pop-up installation, corner of Burwash Drive & Rycon Drive!


These eye-catching, re-purposed traffic signs are fun to view in the daytime, but they also dance with reflections at night!

Bring a flashlight to shine on these works, and watch the graphics reflect back at you just like a sign on the highway!

It’s Free! On display for a limited time during March.

Signs by Boris Atamanenko and Rowan.

Installed by Donna Dooley, Rowan and Boris Atamanenko.
