Outdoor skating rinks now open in Toronto

Toronto has been inundated with Christmas decorations and carols since before Halloween, but today, one of the best parts of the winter season has finally arrived: outdoor skating rinks.

Thanks to temperatures hovering below zero, the City of Toronto has opened 35 of its outdoor rinks today. An additional 15 will be toe pick-ready on December 5.

If you're eager to hit the ice, the Cavalcade of Lights at Nathan Phillips Square will open with a dance party set to the Frozen soundtrack tonight.

So if the cold doesn't bother you, glide into your weekend at Toronto's biggest Christmas celebration or head to one of the many rinks and trails located throughout the city.

For more information about which outdoor rinks are open, check out the city's website.
