When it’s hot outside, go inside and build an igloo

When it’s summer outside volunteers at the North Thompson Fall Fairgrounds are inside building an igloo.

An especially unique igloo as it is being made out of discarded milk jugs that have been generously donated by residents of Barriere and the surrounding area.

Supervising the construction project is North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association board member Joanne Pettersen who reports she spent most of last winter gathering, counting, and washing milk jugs.

Pettersen says the project will require well over 600 milk jugs, plenty of glue, and a large amount of volunteerism and enthusiasm to create the igloo.

If you are wondering why the Barriere fairgrounds needs such an interesting structure, it is earmarked for the association’s second annual Christmas at the Fall Fair Light Show which will be taking place in December.
