Once a year , the lovely little village of Portland, clears off an 1 km oval on the "Big Rideau".
They run an amazing event called "Skate the Lake", this year it will be held on the 28th and 29th of January
A full weekend of events are planned, and you can pre register for any of the skating challenges ahead of time. Public skating with a DJ, and fireworks after the last race is finished on Saturday.
Fresh air, outdoor fun and exercise, this is a wonderful addition to a stay at Newboro House B and B, we are just a short ( less than 10 minute) drive away.
Come book a stay with us!
