Winterlude’s Snowflake Kingdom will be moving to the north end of Jacques-Cartier Park this year to make room for the winter version of MosaïCanada.
That’s one the changes announced for the 40th annual Winterlude celebration, which this year takes place in the National Capital Region from Feb. 2 to 19.
The Snowflake Kingdom will still be the home for kids’ slides and also offer nordic activities and performances. But it is moving to the north end of the park at 350 Laurier Street.
The winter playground’s former location to the south will be home to Mosaïvernales, the winter iteration of this summmer’s popular sculpture exhibit MosaïCanada. Mosaïvernales takes place from Jan. 26 to March 4, but its hours will differ and an entrance fee will apply.
“You’re still going to have the great snow slides, you’re going to have tube slides this year, there’s going to be snow sculptures, everything like that,” said Canadian Heritage spokesperson Natalie Huneault.
Huneault said there will also be an aerial trample wall show at the park created for the 40th anniversary.
