Rivière L'Assomption, Joliette, Québec
This is Québec's longest skating rink. Two parallel tracks of 4 kilometers each are linked together at the ends, creating a continuous 8.3-kilometer loop snaking through the center of Joliette.
30th annual Festi-Glace de Joliette: February 3-12, 2012
Visit the Official Site

Joliette's winter carnival, Festi-Glace, brings 30,000 people to the river for two weekends in a row at the end of January and the beginning of February.
On a quiet day, there's plenty of room to spread out. The snow-covered median strip is dotted with Christmas trees and benches to rest on. There's a snack bar on the ice in case you get hungry.
The river's high steep banks shield the skating track from cold winter winds. Seven river access points offer free parking and heated shelters, including the brand-new skaters' pavilion in the Parc Louis-Querbes. Another popular starting point is Restaurant Henri, located just north of downtown on Joliette's main street (a continuation of Autoroute 31).
Joliette is a favorite weekend destination for Nordic skaters and speedskaters.
