Celebrate the arrival of spring and the advent of the whaling season at Piuraagiaqta Spring Festival. It features a dynamic array of games, contests and activities â€" all intended to get the whaling crews energized and ready for the pending whale hunt. Watch competitive races, including snow mobile races and sled races. Whaling captains and their crews also race, and thereâ€™s a lively harpoon throwing contest. You can also watch the tea race, where competitors must see who can make tea the fastest. While the spring games are all about fun, they also involve skills needed for whaling. The competitions get the whaling crews in shape physically and mentally. Would you like to experience Piuraagiaqta Spring Festival?
