Canada's longest outdoor skating rink 7.8 km. becomes the hub for fun outdoor activities Feb. 1 to 18th (weekends only for special activities). Music, other entertainment, snack stands where you can devour a tasty Beavertail to suit all appetites. Bring your own skates, rent or borrow your neighbour's equipment. Skate or walk, it is time well spent.
The Byward Market is also holding an ice sculpture contest and many other activities for children as well as free sleigh rides around the Capital - the Big Day is February 10th - Family Day so all can get out and enjoy their Capital.
Feb. 5-8 is the Capital Comedy Fest held at various venues such as the National Capital Centre and other designated areas.
FORGET ABOUT THE COLD AND COME OUT AND LAUGH!
