winter carnival is on this weekend at Benny Park.
On Saturday, Winter Fun Fest is inviting everyone outdoors for an afternoon of winter sports and games in the park located at the corner of Cavendish and Terrebone in NDG.
Winter gear will be provided free of charge if you can’t bring your own. The rink will be open and children of all ages can go snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. There will be several inflatable slides and a mini-rink to skate on. All activities are free.
Fresh snow fell this week and temperatures are expected to remain below freezing, so conditions should be excellent for sports and games.
Bring a hat, warm gloves, a scarf, wear a couple of layers of clothing and dry boots and you can stay warm for the whole event from noon to 3 p.m.
The organizers are providing hot chocolate, hot dogs and marshmallows.
Jeunesse Benny expects about 900 families to participate this year. Come on out and celebrate winter – everyone is welcome.
The annual family event is organized by Jeunesse Benny in collaboration with Comité Jeunesse NDG and the NDG Outing & Sports Club.
