Embrace the weather this winter by taking on some fun plans to fill your weekends! Whether you live in the Bay of Quinte, or planning a visit, you won’t wanna miss out on these fun activities!
Hockey is a necessity in many Canadian lives, so it’s no surprise that we have added Hockey to this list (not that you needed a reminder)! The Belleville Senators have such a great fan base that no matter what your mood is you will be out of your seat and cheering in no time. Games continue well into the new year so buy your tickets now and get to it!
The next time a snow storm gets you down, try and remember that more snow means more time to ski at the Batawa Ski Hill! Perfect for beginners, advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders due to their excellent staff and twelve hills that vary in style, length and difficulty. If you have never skied or snowboarded before, show up early and meet with your very own instructor to learn the ropes and then hit the slopes!
One of the staples of the holiday season for locals, The Bay of Quinte knows how to get festive during the winter months. Spend an evening with family and some hot cocoa walking through both the Frankford and Trentons holiday-inspired and beautifully lit Fantasy of Lights.
A truly special experience, bring your little ones over to walk among a wonderland of lights in the charming town of Frankford. Placed along the Trent River the light show includes stories told through intricate sets and an epic snowball fight between some rather large snowmen.
Yet another spectacularly lit scene to enjoy alongside the waterfront in downtown Trenton. Grab yourself a hot chocolate from a nearby Cafe like The Grind Cafe and get whisked away to a festive dream as you walk among the beautiful lights and hear carols sung as you take in your stunning surroundings among loved ones.
Plan a visit to both on December 15th by hopping on the Holly Trolly every half hour between 4:30 and 9:30!
Pack on the sweaters if you decide to see what ice fishing is all about this winter. Known for being a fisherman’s dream any time of the year, you can be sure to find a catch or two that will make it worth your while! Interested?
