Christmas may be a month away, but everyone knows that once it hits November, it's about time to get into the holiday spirit. Can't wait until December to get festive in Toronto? Well thankfully, you won't have to – because a brand new winter festival is coming to Toronto next week and bringing a frozen outdoor pond for ice skating along with it.

Aurora Winter Festival starts in Toronto this month on November 29th. This marks the first time the North Pole-themed festival has come to the city. An ice skating frozen river will make its debut in the festival and it sounds like it's going to be absolutely magical.
The frozen river for ice skating will have seriously sweet views. It'll be located at Ontario Place right beside Lake Ontario and give you a view of the Toronto skyline on the horizon. Plus, access to the ice skating pond is included with your ticket. You can bring your own skates or rent them onsite.
Besides a magical ice skating river, there will be several other Christmas festivities at Aurora. There will be a huge tube park with a 180 feet long slide for people of all ages, a Ferris wheel, holiday light displays, decorations and more!
You can already get tickets to the winter festival. General admission costs $19.99 and you can buy tickets in advance on their website. Aurora Winter Festival will be at Ontario Place this winter from November 29th to December 30th.
