It’s official …

… The Rideau Canal is open for the 2011 skating season! Well, at least some of it.

Starting tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., a 2.4-kilometre stretch of the world’s biggest skating rink will be open between the Pretoria Bridge and the Bank Street Bridge.

As always, check out the ice conditions on the National Capital Commission’s website.

Happy skating! May the ice be smooth and the BeaverTails warm!

And feel free to share your photos with us!
