Skating on Market Square

Skating on Market Square
What a difference a day makes. On Friday evening, the City of Kingston had their annual Jingle Bell Walk, where a group of carollers led the way from Market Square to City Park to flick the switch on the festive light display. Twenty-four hours later, we were digging ourselves out of 3 to 5 centimeters of snow, and dealing with considerably lower temperatures. Although the colder weather is not preferred when we need to be out and about, it’s allowed the ice surface behind City Hall to be ready on schedule. On Saturday night, we snapped a few shots of the sizable crowd skating on the rink until the wee hours of the morning. Check out our latest Flickr set for more images. This year, we’ve vowed to make weekly skating trips to both the rink at City Hall as well as the smaller ice surface at Skeleton Park. These small forays onto Kingston’s frozen tundra help justify the use of our gas stove during the winter months.
