Visitors can take part in winter sports and games
GATINEAU, QC, Jan. 31, 2014 /CNW/ - This morning, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Shelly Glover and Gatineau mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin officially launched Winterlude's Snowflake Kingdom. They were accompanied by special guests and Winterlude's mascots, the Ice Hog family.
With its gigantic snow slides that can accommodate more than 2,000 sliders an hour, the Snowflake Kingdom entices visitors to enjoy the great outdoors and explore our Canadian traditions with activities inspired by winter sports and games.
Located at Jacques-Cartier Park in Gatineau, the Snowflake Kingdom-North America's largest snow playground-is open Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The park is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
"Children and the young at heart are invited to enjoy a uniquely Canadian winter experience at Winterlude's Snowflake Kingdom, which is the result of the expertise, talent, and creativity of the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Ville de Gatineau."
-Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages
"The Ville de Gatineau is pleased to be co-producing the Snowflake Kingdom for a third year and to make this site not only the biggest snow playground on the continent, but also one of the most lively and entertaining ones. This highly popular event is first and foremost a fun family get-together, and I am delighted with this new edition."
-Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, Mayor, Ville de Gatineau
