The Rideau Canal cuts through downtown Ottawa. When it freezes over in the winter, it is the world's largest skating rink.

Winterlude is one of Ottawa's ways of making the most out of winter. At the center of the Winterlude activities the frozen Rideau Canal becomes a 7.8 kilometer skateway. For two weeks every February it is the center of many Winterlude activities. Other activities include ice caving and snow sculpture competitions, and outdoor performers.

This panorama was taken on a very cold Sunday afternoon on February 13. The weekends are always very busy.
