From December 15 to mid-March, the Olympic Park will be hosting a winter wonderland of free activities. You can look forward to toboggan slides, ice skating trails, mini tennis in the snow, food trucks, live entertainment and so much more. And, if you get cold, there are strategically placed warm-up zones throughout the park. It seems like they really have thought of everything this year…
The Olympic Park’s Winter Village‘s grand opening is on December 15 but he fun continues well into the New Year and, on December 31, the park will be hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration and bonfire. Revellers can enjoy the fireworks while ice skating around the beautiful park.
If you are looking for new ways to enjoy the winter, why not take up snow tennis? It’s tennis, but in the snow. Sounds reasonable and it’s probably a really good workout. Instructors with equipment will be waiting to give you a tutorial from January 5 until March 9 at the Olympic Park. Then, on February 15-16 look out for Barbegazi, the Extreme Sports Winter Festival. The festival will feature activities for everyone like freestyle snowmobiling, snowboard competitions, free skiing, snow skating, and a good old fashioned lumberjack challenge.
The Winter Village at the Olympic Park is going to be full of life all winter long, from festive events in December to spring break fun scheduled for March like the superhero-themed celebration for Nuit Blanche and the Montreal High Lights Festival. And, if that’s not enough, thanks to the success of the Park Olympic’s First Fridays food truck event, they’ve decided to introduce a winter version called First Saturdays where you can delight in a variety of festive foods from food trucks all winter long.
