Bal de Neige
Winterlude, the Capital's winter celebration, is held in Ottawa–Gatineau each February. It was created in 1979 to celebrate Canada's unique northern climate and culture. Skate on the world's largest skating rink, check out the ice carving competitions 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.
