Silver Skate Festival 2013
Did you head out to Silver Skate Festival in Hawrelak Park? I have to admit, I had never been before. The Family Day long weekend had warmer weather for it so we headed out, all bundled out, ready to see what it was all about.
I was surprised by how many different activities there were to do and demonstrations to see. It was really well laid out and organized. You could have easily spent all afternoon there.
Demonstrations on blacksmithing, eating maple syrup off snow, horse sleigh rides, snow slides, intricate snow sculptures, the list goes on and on.
If you are hungry, there was a Holland pavilion serving up goodies as well as a couple of food trucks. And of course, lots of skating options, to try out or even just to watch.
Looking forward to next year's festival to partake in the activities we missed.
