Vaporize gummy bears. Make sand dance. Turn music into flame. They may not sound like traditional winter activities, but they’re just a few of the interactive demonstrations that await visitors to Brandon University’s Winterlude on Saturday.
The annual daylong open house features events, music, food and entertainment — and it’s all free.
"Everyone is invited," says BU president Deborah Poff. "Winterlude is a great opportunity to explore the campus and experience the compelling advantages which make BU the university of choice for students from western Manitoba and beyond."
Winterlude kicks off at 10:30 a.m. with a free hot breakfast in the university’s main dining hall. Demonstrations involving professors and students from the faculties of science, arts, health studies, music and visual arts begin at 12:30 p.m. throughout the campus. Other highlights include a students versus staff/faculty hockey game, Bobcats basketball games, public skating, hot chocolate and a bannock bake-off open to all.
"We have been a part of this community for more than 100 years, and during Winterlude, we throw open the doors to say thanks with food and entertainment," Poff says.
