On the first weekend, January 17 and 18, Main Street in Jordan welcomes the Ice Bar, a quaint village nestled in West Niagara at the foot of the escarpment. Jordan is home to some of the most highly regarded wineries in Ontario. On the second weekend, January 24 and 25, historic Queen Street in Niagara-on-the-Lake will be the host and partially closed off to traffic to allow visitors to stroll though the shops of downtown while they enjoy the festivities. Food, wine and great Niagara hospitality from noon to 5 pm, free admission.
