Photo cred - Parc Olympique

Winter isn't all bad. Yes, there are frigid winds, a lack of sunlight that instills a certain sense of despair, and the inability to keep your hair looking fresh due to tuques, but there are awesome aspects like Christmas, and ice skating. Donning some skates and cruising around a rink is a winter tradition that's fun for anyone, and you can do partake in the joy of skating for free this winter at the Olympic Stadium.

The Big O's l’Esplanade Financière Sun Life will be transformed into a Winter Village in the coming weeks, with a huge ice rink being set up as one of the main attractions. Parc Olympique promises the skating rink will be entirely free, just like last year.

Also to be enjoyed at the Parc Olympic Winter Village will be musical performances, a bunch of entertainment activities, and a huge Christmas tree which will surely get you into the holiday spirit. Find out more by heading to the Parc Olympique Facebook page.
