Another edition of Winterlude is in the books, and organizers say it was a success despite some wicked weather and changes in venues.

Multiple snow events, including one storm that packed more than 30 centimetres, hit during the three-week festival.

"Having been planning winter festivals for over 41 years, the Winterlude team is very much accustomed to working with Mother Nature and everything that she has to offer us," said Melanie Brault, Canadian Heritage.

Some of this year's Winterlude events moved to more urban areas, like Sparks Street and the ByWard Market, as organizers tried to attract more people to the festival.

"We really feel it's been a wonderful success, and I think it has to do with our new destinations," Brault told 1310 NEWS.

After the success of Winterlude's urban locations, Brault says organizers are already looking at where else they can branch out to for Winterlude 2020.
