Free food. Yes, free food! The best way to stay warm and energized during all your winter fun is to eat a hearty breakfast. For the ninth year in a row, show up at Marion Dewar Plaza at Ottawa City Hall on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. for a free pancake and hot chocolate breakfast. The early bird gets the pancake, though, because it’s only while supplies last! This is a great way to start your day before heading across to see the ice sculptures in Confederation Park or go for a skate on the Rideau Canal.
