After several years of striking out with warm weather and a green setting, Stratford Winterfest has struck white gold.

The annual January celebration of snow begins today with the flakes falling steadily.

It’s the perfect backdrop for the event.

We’re in for another two centimeters today with a chance of snow and flurries throughout the weekend.

Multiple events are planned for tonight, tomorrow and Sunday down at Lower Queen’s park.
