This year the Orillia Winter Carnival will be located in beautiful Downtown Orillia. A portion of Mississaga and Matchedash Street will be closed off for this year’s event and is sure to be a great time in the downtown core!
New this year, there will be a large Kids Zone that includes fun activities organized by City of Orillia Parks, Recreation and Culture as well as Camp Couchiching. Watch Downtown Orillia transform into a spectacular winter wonderland complete with a midway, Ice Castle Building Party, warming stations and don’t forget the giant Mount Mississaga Ice Slide! There will be Mini Snowmobiles plus another new addition this year, a Yukigassentournament (i.e. Family friendly Snowball Fight), as well as a NEW Youth Dance Party and adult dance featuring Dr Krane plus many other fun events! And don’t miss the Polar Bear dip also happening on Saturday at 2 pm at the Ice Castle with this year’s proceeds going to The Lighthouse Soup Kitchen and Shelter!
