Entertainment and activities | February 11, 2014

It’s a frosty family festival. Grab your skates and head to Celebration Square for Family Day where you can skate and lose yourself in the twisting paths of a giant 25 foot ice maze.

Bring your family for a full afternoon of festivities with shows by the Puppet Tamer, roaming buskers and face painting.  For the foodie in your family, there will be delicious treats available from C Cafe and local food trucks, Caplansky’s and Canadian favourite, Beavertails. Keep your fingers and toes warm at our cozy fire pits.

The Family Day event on the Square is presented by RBC.  Stop by the RBC Olympic podium and live the dream of taking home the gold. Former Toronto Maple Leaf and Olympic athlete Al Iafrate will be at the Square signing autographs from 1 to 3 p.m.
