Snow way! Skating and snow-filled fun are coming to Huntsville’s River Mill Park

Winter in Huntsville is about to get a whole lot more fun! The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce and the Huntsville Festival of the Arts have joined forces to transform River Mill Park into a whimsical winter wonderland. Add Downtown Huntsville to your must-visit list for frosty fun, skating delights, and a dash of seasonal magic that will leave you with memories as warm as a cup of cocoa.

The chilly festivities kick off with the opening of the River Mill Park Skating Rink. This is no ordinary rink — it's the heart of a winter extravaganza!

The rink will be open daily. Plus, every Saturday afternoon for 10 weeks, some extra entertainment will be sprinkled into the mix. Picture on-ice buskers enthralling the skaters, off-ice buskers dazzling the crowd, Muskoka Goat Away having goats on-site to visit, and kids’-themed DJs turning the ice into a dance floor. And for those craving a sweet touch, hot chocolate vendors will be on hand on select Saturdays to add a warm sip of delight to the icy festivities.

After the sun sets, River Mill Park will be bathed in twinkling lights, with a crackling fire and seasonal music creating a festive atmosphere. The result? An unforgettable nighttime skating experience that will have you coming back for more.

The pièce de résistance of this frosty fiesta is SnowFest, a dazzling one-day winter celebration on Saturday, February 22, 2025, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Get ready for a day filled with live music, buskers and on-ice performers, and interactive activities to keep everyone entertained. Picture yourself roasting marshmallows, sipping on hot chocolate, and marvelling at the mesmerizing artistry of ice sculptors creating masterpieces before your eyes. SnowFest promises a day of joy and wonder for the whole family.

Debuting on the same day as SnowFest, Snow Village is all about family-friendly fun, featuring interactive snow activities like whimsical snow sculptures, sturdy snow forts, and a snow labyrinth. Snow Village will remain open until Mother Nature decides it's time to bid adieu.

Mark your calendars and head to River Mill Park for an unforgettable experience that will linger long after the snow melts away. Lace up your skates, bundle up, and join us for a winter adventure like no other in the heart of Muskoka!
