Looking for a worthy winter road trip?
Just two hours from Toronto, the Fire and Ice Festival will return to Downtown Bracebridge in 2019 and it just might be the perfect excuse to test out your snow tires.
The annual one-day-only event promises practically every essential cold weather activity all in one place.
The ‘Fire’ portion of the festival includes fire artists, in addition to cozy fire pits throughout the downtown core.
The ‘Ice’ aspect includes interactive ice displays, a downtown tube run and a skating trail located in Memorial Park.
Taking place on the last Saturday in January, the massive winter carnival also bills fun family-friendly activities like birds of prey demonstrations, street buskers, Canadian Lumberjack demonstration, a road hockey tournament, outdoor crafts, a kids’ carnival fun zone, outdoor mini golf, outdoor curling, and more.
The best part? There’s an epic firework display to cap off the day.
Passes can be purchased at the event (cash only) or in advance at select locations within Bracebridge.
