When you live in Nunavut, you learn to make your own fun or you don’t have any.

Take New Year’s Eve for example.

There is no official city of Iqaluit fireworks show. What happens at midnight on Dec. 31, everyone sets off the fireworks they have themselves. Then, there is a snowmobile parade on Frobisher Bay.

Here are the sights and sounds from Iqaluit’s homemade New Year’s Eve blowout.
