Canada and its citizens have a well-established reputation for being calm and amicable. Although they may be calm and relaxed most of the time, they still find reasons to party, celebrate, and have fun on every occasion of the year.
There are also lively Canadian events, festivals, and holidays that help people wake from the temptation of winter hibernation. However, the busiest season for festivals in Canada is always summertime when huge numbers of spectators watch from the streets to watch some of the most well-known carnivals.
This is a fun activity during the winter which involves skating on the longest ice-skating rink in the whole world. This takes place in Ottawa during the first to third weekends of February.
Aside from skating, visitors may also enjoy other activities such as workshops on how to build igloos, having fun on the ice playground, and being amused by Confederation Park’s bright ice sculptures.
