Centennial Square


Got mittens? We'll provide the snow! Join us for Snow Day in Centennial Square! on Saturday, December 1 from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. We'll be celebrating all things snow and ice - how cool is that? Snow will fly when world renowned Chef Takashi Ito, Executive Chef at The Inn at Laurel Point and Harold Sawatsky of Ice Decor demonstrate the exciting art of ice carving!  Snow sculptor Cameron Kidd and friends will perform snow sculpture demos, and there will be lots of hands-on fun! Dave DeGiralamo and the team from Island Ice will be creating an ice block building on site throughout the event.

Enjoy winter-themed crafts and gift making, including snowflake decorations and sparkling luminaries. Make hand-printed wrapping paper and cards with Ground Zero Print Makers, and visit with the delightful Snow Fairies created by Luminara designer Jeani Reynolds, as well as Frosty the Snowman and other interactive characters.
 
Le Societe de Francophone de Victoria will be demonstrating the Francophone tradition of the "sugar shack", offering samples of the sweetest snow confection imaginable: Maple Taffy. It's made by boiling maple syrup until it is thick and then pouring it over fresh shaved ice or "snow". Be sure to visit their "Cabane a sucre" and sample this special treat!

And best of all, bring your mittens because there is going to be a ton of the white stuff to play in!  You'll enjoy our Carnival-style snow games such as the snowball slide and snowball target throw!
 
This festive event will include music by DJ Nigel Morrison and live music by singer Stephanie Greaves. All this plus free treats and fun giveaways will ensure this FREE event is wonderful winter fun for the whole family!  Please join us to have fun in the snow!

Rain, shine or snow! Please bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Mustard Seed.
