Get ready to unleash your inner Scot Toronto, the fourth annual Great Canadian Kilt Skate returns this month!
On January 28, the skating rink at Nathan Phillips Square will be decked out with tartan-clad skaters, giving Torontonians the opportunity to embrace Scottish culture in a totally Canadian way.
But don’t worry, if you’re not feeling like baring your legs, kilts are completely optional.
The Kilt Skate was created by the Scottish Society of Ottawa to celebrate the bicentennial of Canada’s first prime minister, John A. MacDonald.
The original skate took place in Ottawa and slowly over time other Canadian cities joined in. This year, five other Canadian cities will be participating in the festivities including Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, Saskatoon, and North Glengarry.
So get your skates and kilts ready Toronto, it’s time to show off your Scottish pride!
When: January 28, 1 pm to 3 pm
Where: Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen Street West
