Burns Lake hosts numerous colourful and well-attended festivals and events throughout the year. Rain or shine, snow or blizzard, the locals are there rooting on their neighbours.
In February, check out the Cold Smoke snowmobile drag races. Make sure to bundle up for the cold weather.
Around the same time, attend the town's winter festival, which entails a parade, bonfire and music. The festival also features unique games such as junk pail curling on the lake.
In the spring, watch and listen to an incredible line-up of talented musicians, artists and actors at the Lakes District Festival of Performing Arts. The festival started more than 50 years ago and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern British Columbia.
