February Special Notes

Date: January 29, 2019 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: News Bits


This year, Winterlude will run from February 1st to February 18th.

The Snowflake Kingdom, located in Gatineau’s Jacques-Cartier Park, is definitely North America’s snow paradise. Three weeks filled with exciting activities await you. You’ll have a great time on the giant slides, stand awestruck before the snow sculptures of the National Snow Sculpture Rendezvous that will be lit up at night, boogie to the rhythm of the shows and DJ music, and enjoy the entertainment. Join the party in Gatineau during Winterlude, and come meet the mascots, the popular Ice Hogs. Free winter fun for the whole family!
