Only in Ottawa can you experience this fabulous winter festival called Winterlude and skate on the world’s largest skating rink, check out the ice carving competitions, while enjoying warm and delicious Beaver Tails and hot chocolate or enjoy yourself in a huge winter playground surrounded by majestic snow sculptures. There’s fun for the entire family, and all sites are open on Family Day.
