in Ottawa Family Fun, Postcards from Manotick

One of the many things I’m loving about Manotick is that there’s a community festival of some sort about every six weeks or so. This Friday and Saturday, it’s Shiverfest!

24:365 Skates

There’s all sorts of family fun, including a bonfire, public skating, a chili cook-off and even a photography contest. There’s a pancake breakfast followed by a special kids’ program featuring face painting, tattoos and a visit by a truck from Ottawa Fire Services at the Manotick Arena. Later in the day on Saturday, there’s a show by Dino’s Reptiles, and a late afternoon teeny-bopper dance. There’s also horse-drawn sleigh rides and tobogganing in the park. Doesn’t that sound like an awesome winter day?

For more information, including lots of specials from local vendors, see this Shiverfest pdf from the Manotick Village and Community Association.

That does sound like fun!

(except for the cold, snowy, icy, shivering part…)
