About Rainbow SnowPals

The Rainbow SnowPals Competiton is a Winter Activities Program hosted by UR Pride and Queen City Pride to encourage folks to enjoy some winter fun (safely!) and is funded by the City of Regina.

This activity is one part SnowPal-making competition and one part knitting/crocheting workshops. The online workshops will teach you the basics and intermediate skills of knitting and crocheting so that you can learn how to make hats, scarves, and more! We then encourage you to build a SnowPal and decorate it with your crafted items. We’ll have prizes for the best Rainbow SnowPals entered into our online competition.
