Winterlude -- or Bal De Neige as we say in French...is a festival of ice
and snow held on the Rideau River Canal skateway each winter in Ottawa,
our national capital. Every February around Dows Lake - a man made inner city
lake built in th 1820s at the same time as the Canal, Dows Lake is
transformed into an ice surface and becomes a skating and ice sculpture
paradise. A series winter events - skating competitions, bed races, etc. form
part of Winterlude and last until the ice is
unsafe to skate and walk on.
One of Ottawa's most famous desserts...a fried cinnamon pastry called
Beaver Tails... was first made
and sold at this event.
Winterlude is a fantastic Area-51 child that breeds as freaky as it's father
does. You never know what you will get when you hybridize with
Winterlude. It is really a Pandora's box for colour diversity.
