Are you ready to beat that winter blues once and for all and have yourself a well-deserved blast?

The 52nd Richmond Hill Winter Carnival will be held on Feb. 1 and 2 at Mill Pond Park between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., which is going to bring back popular traditional activities and offer brand new shows.

Thousands of people are expected to flock to the pond near the corner of Mill Street and Trench Street to celebrate the season with live entertainment, mouth-watering food and exciting shows.

The winter carnival is a long-standing and annual community tradition in Richmond Hill, organized by volunteers and free to the public.

With a toasty fire pit to keep warm, revelers will get a chance to watch shows by the Great Canadian Lumberjacks, and enjoy a variety of live entertainment including competing and demonstrating axe throwing, wood chopping, crosscut sawing and chainsaw events.

Meanwhile, family favourites such as woodcarving, pony and train rides will return.

Food trucks will be on hand again this year to provide a wide range of food options including candy floss, hot chocolate and Sunday morning breakfast of pancakes and sausages.

New this year, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority will provide a maple taffy station on-site to satisfy your sweet tooth.

There will be no shuttle buses provided this year.

Those who need to park near the site should use the free facilities in the east parking lot of Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital on Trench Street.
