If you are not sure how to spend your Family Day this year, why not make the trip to Ottawa for Winterlude? Winterlude, the Capital’s winter celebration, is held in Ottawa–Gatineau each February. It was created in to celebrate Canada’s unique northern climate and culture. The 39th annual Winterlude celebration takes place from February 3-20, 2017. Check out some of the awesome activities at last year’s festival:
While you take part in ice carving, skating, and other exciting outdoor activities, make sure you stay warm with our best selection of outerwear for Winterlude!
For men, fashion and function meet in the middle with this selection of jackets from our top winter brands. We compared men’s bomber jackets at the end of last year, and any of these down options would suit a day at Winterlude. What really sets this selection apart is the abundance of unique colours – gone is the fleet of basic black! We love the beautiful green Moose Knuckles 3Q, and the deep burgundy Fjallraven Polar Guide. These jackets are perfect for sipping a hot chocolate while your kids play in the snow, or going for a leisurely skate down the Canal!
For the ladies, long coats take the cake; they’re the best way to stay warm while you play in the snow! Beautiful fur trims make these coats fashionable and toasty warm, and we love the different silhouettes available this season. The Parajumpers Long Bear is a long time favourite – you can learn more about the brand here. We also can’t get enough of the gorgeous colours available from Mackage – jewel tones are the perfect boost on a gloomy winter day. Be sure to layer up underneath your coat in order to stay warm while you enjoy the festival!
