Archive for winterlude


By Linda Tancs

If wintertime pursuits are your passion, then head to Canada’s capital city, Ottowa, for Winterlude through 21 February.  Taking place downtown, most events are free and include skating, snow and ice sculpture, concerts, sleigh rides and tobogganing.  Events are held at Jacques Cartier Park, Festival Plaza at Ottawa City Hall, and Confederation Park, but the highlight is most certainly Rideau Canal, which transforms into a giant skating rink, the Rideau Canal Skateway.  A skater’s paradise, this canal linking the Ottawa River with Lake Ontario is the oldest continuously operating canal in North America.


Winter Festivals

By Linda Tancs

Winter festivals are usually viewed as a celebration of the season and all its wintry accoutrements. But sometimes these events are more about ushering in spring–or just celebrating life. Tune in for a worldwide sampling at Travelrific® Radio.
