On Boxing Day, December 26, the high-tech skating oval on the Plains of Abraham opened, to the delight of Quebec City residents and visitors alike. To celebrate the event, hot chocolate was handed out to the first 200 people who laced up their skates, compliments of the Ville de Québec and the National Battlefields Commission.
