YK Faces: Campground Kickoff

Susan Mercredi and Lauren Mercredi having a cook-off

In YK Faces, a new regular feature, we send James Mackenzie out to catch up with Yellowknifers as they socialize around the town. This Victoria Day long weekend, local campgrounds were the place to be as the city celebrated the first big camping weekend of the season. Yellowknifers headed out of town to enjoy this magical time between that lingering chill in the air and the en masse arrival of bugs — and fire bans.
