Watch: Yellowknife welcomes 2022 with fireworks in -40C

Yellowknife residents braved extreme cold at 8pm on Friday to watch a fireworks display ring in 2022 from the city’s Frame Lake.

Temperatures verged on -40C and wind chill values of near -50 were reported. Even so, many residents stayed for the duration of a 35-minute light show seen from vantage points across the city.

The aurora borealis appeared above Yellowknife on the same evening.
