Ice Skating Trail through the Trees - The Frostival 2019

A new spin on a small town event known as “The Frostival” in Coboconk will be offered this year at Balsam Lake Provincial Park! Come try the Frostival’s outdoor skating trail at Balsam Lake Provincial Park on January 26th & 27th.  
The Coboconk, Norland & Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Balsam Lake Provincial Park and Kawartha Lakes Tourism are hosting an event on Saturday January 26th and Sunday January 27th to kick off the creation of the new skate trail – just for this event!  
Similar to the popular skating trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park, the trail for this event runs throughout the forested park with bonfires, staging areas, and is lined by torchlight.  The skate trail will be available to the public during The Frostival event with an evening torch-lit skate on Saturday from 4pm – 8pm, followed by an afternoon of skating on Sunday from noon – 4pm.  Admission to the event is $15 per car and only cash will be accepted.  Complimentary hot chocolate will be served throughout the event and the crosscountry ski and snowshoe trails will be open for use as well, all events weather permitting.  
Bring your family and your skates(and the kids helmets!) and spend the weekend outdoors embracing winter and experiencing the Frostival’s skate trail at Balsam Lake Provincial Park.  Please note: this is the only time the skating trail will be open to the public this season.
