You can skate in your underwear below the Gardiner in December

Dec 18 2018, 2:26 am

Torontonians are invited to drop their drawers and ring in the New Year by skating in their knickers this December.

This is a chilly but fun twist on the traditional polar bear dip and welcomes skaters to strip down to their intimates and skate along the Bentway skate trail below the Gardiner Expressway on Sunday, December 30.

The best part? This fun event is absolutely free and all pre-registered skaters will receive a free hot chocolate and a chance to win a special Bentway prize pack.

Registration begins at 1:30 pm and all skaters are asked to visit the yellow Bentway registration tent next to the skate trail to check in and receive further instructions.

But don’t worry, last-minute registrations will still be accepted on the day of the event.

And if you don’t own a pair of skates, the Bentway has skate rentals available onsite.

The Bentway Polar Bear Skate
