Outdoor skating rinks open this week in Toronto

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Winter has finally blown into Toronto, putting a hard stop on the unseasonably warm weather we'd been experiencing up until Saturday. It looks like it's chilly days from here on in, but at least there's a silver lining: outdoor skating.

Toronto's outdoor rinks open this week. Some should be ready by Saturday, November 26 and the rest will open up by December 3.

If you're heading to the Cavalcade of Lights on Saturday night, this means you'll be able to join the skating party happening alongside all of the holiday festivities. So lace up and hit the ice before it gets too cold out.
