Come Chill With Us Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2014

PolarFest is an exciting winter carnival offering events guaranteed to entertain the whole family.

The opening festivities will take place at Heritage Park in Bridgenorth located on Ward Street.

There will be other events on Friday evening, including a night hike at the Marshland Centre hosted by the Lakefield Trail Committee and a candlelight skate at the Ontario Speed Skating Oval in Lakefield.

The fun continues on Saturday with more events:

• Pancake breakfast hosted by the Causeway Christian Assembly;

• Ice sculptures through the Township and a competition/awards ceremony;

• Family drop in hosted by the Peterborough Family Resource Centre;

• Family story time at the Bridgenorth Library;

• Little chippers – hands on ice carving for children;

•Hot air balloon rides with Remax;

• Polar Paddle on Queen Street in Lakefield, an event that can’t be missed;

• Horse drawn sleigh rides in Ennismore hosted by the Optimist Club;

• An evening of Fire and Ice – five course meal at Chemong Lodge.

We wrap up the festival with a bang. On Sunday, February 2, PolarFest has free public skating at both Lakefield and Ennismore arenas.

All ice sculptures will still be on display, so if you couldn’t make it out on Saturday, make sure you come by and take a look on Sunday.

All day Sunday is Nordic Day at the Ontario Speed Skating Oval. Adventure Outfitters will be there, so it is the time to try cross country skiing or snowshoeing.

Last but not least is the annual Polar Plunge hosted by B.E.L. Rotary Club. Watch people who raised money for local charities plunge into the frigid waters.

While you are there, Remax will be doing hot air balloon rides and there will be an antique snowmobile display.
