Get ready to unleash your inner Scot Montreal, the fourth annual Great Canadian Kilt Skate returns this month!
On January 20, the Natrel Skating Rink in Vieux Port will be decked out with tartan-clad skaters, giving Montrealers 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 Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa, Saskatoon, and North Glengarry.
So get your skates and kilts ready Montreal, it’s time to show off your Scottish pride!
When: January 20, 2 pm to 4 pm
Where: Natrel Skating Rink, Vieux Port, 333 Rue de la Commune O
