There are weekly interactive live ice carving demonstrations, pop-up food trucks, hot chocolate, fireside storytimes, community dog walks, live music, and no shortage of good company! Check out the website for weekly programming and pop-up activities. (You’ll know you’re in the right place when the familiar smell of campfire hits your nose and gives you all the camping and nature feels without having to leave the city.) Hygge Hut is open Fridays, 2 to 6pm, Saturdays, Sundays, and Statutory Holidays Noon to 6pm until March.
