Waterloo Ice Dogs Festival rebranded as Winterloo this weekend

 Ice Dogs FestivalFor 10 years, the Ice Dogs Festival has delighted families with its great outdoor events. Celebrate the 10th anniversary this weekend with some new features, including a new name – Winterloo!

Everyone’s favourites – dog sled rides, ice sculpture carving, great art activities at the Button Factory, free public skating at the Public Square, free family movies, and a great chili cook-off featuring some of Waterloo’s top eateries will still be featured. There’s something for everyone!

Rebranding the event as Winterloo is aimed at encouraging even more people to enjoy the free events offered at the annual winter festival. The plan is to transition from the well-known Ice Dogs name to Winterloo – a combination of “winter” and “Waterloo” – and eventually drop the old name entirely and replace the dog paw print logo with a snowflake. This year, programming will be spread out across Waterloo, from Laurel Creek Nature Centre to First United Church and city hall.

Where: UpTown Waterloo

When: February 16-18, 2013
