As a driver, the winter season can be a lot of fun. Even though the race tracks are closed (and who the heck is willing to drive to Minden for ice-racing) there’s still the opportunity to test out your Michelin snow tires in the first storm of the season. Plus, you an take the family out to a drive-thru Christmas Light show even on the coldest night.
Last year, there was a very non-traditional display at Ontario Place called Snow Magic, but unfortunately it hasn’t retuned for 2022.
This year there’s a whole list of shows across Ontario. Some will tap you for $25, while others are free.
