Four hundred and twenty-nine Brandonites started their Saturday morning with a free, hearty hot brunch at Brandon University as part of the school’s annual Winterlude festival.

The brunch included the live band Until Red, which rocked the cafeteria. As well, there was a children’s area where, after breakfast, little artists created their own masterpieces and walked away with balloons in the university colours of blue and gold.

Attendees received free passes to the Bobcat basketball home games Saturday night.

The day included a campus open house, with interactive demonstrations involving professors and students in arts, science, health studies, athletics and visual arts.

More than 170 people participated in the Indigenous Winter Games featuring traditional fiddlers and fire-baked bannock.

Elsewhere on campus, fans watched floor hockey that pitted two teams of alumni against a faculty and staff team and a student team. The alumni team, led by Nathan Peto, was triumphant and received the BU trophy, which has been the reward for winners at Brandon University for more than 100 years.

"It was a great day, with something for everyone," said BU president Deborah Poff. "It is wonderful to have the citizens of Brandon celebrate their university at Winterlude every year. This is a terrific tradition and we hope to make it better every year."
