tubing hill bracebridge

This massive snow tubing hill in Ontario is back next month

It's officially winter and with it comes plenty of opportunities to skate, slide, race, ski and sustain minor frostbite. If you're looking for a day of epic winter fun, look no further than the Fire & Ice Festival.

Bracebridge, Ontario is gearing up for a day of campfires, ice sculptures and lots and lots of tubing, right down the main strip and through the middle of town.

Manitoba Street is set to be covered with repurposed snow brought in by over fifty trucks for the day to make way for a tubing extravaganza that's only one part of the festival.

Visitors can trek up and down the makeshift snowhill while a road hockey tournament, birds of prey demonstrations, traditional carnival activities, food and drinks all take place on the sidelines.

Tickets for the festival are only $5 for a whole lot of fun going down on January 26.
