The exciting and spectacular game of lacrosse, descendant of the double ball, will be displayed throughout Winterlude at the Snowflake Kingdom. Spectators will be invited to interact, learn and play the game with actual lacrosse athletes. What was once a field game or ritual played by First Nations, lacrosse received special recognition in 1994, when Parliament declared it to be "Canada's National Summer Sport.” Presented by The Algonquin Way Cultural Centre, Omàmiwininì Pimàdjwowin.
