Enbridge Gas Distribution Invites Community to Free Pancake Breakfast to Start Winterlude Celebrations in Ottawa

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2013) - For the ninth year, Enbridge Gas Distribution is hosting its free annual Winterlude pancake breakfast on Saturday, February 2, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to noon, or while quantities last. The community is invited to come by for free pancakes and hot chocolate to start off their day of festivities. The breakfast will take place in the Marion Dewar Plaza at Ottawa City Hall, across from Confederation Park.

Enbridge is a long-time sponsor of Winterlude and the breakfast is one of the opening events to help kick off Canada's winter celebration.

"We take great pride in being a part of this Canadian celebration," says Paul Green, Director of Public & Government Affairs at Enbridge Gas Distribution. "Participating in this annual tradition is one of the ways Enbridge and its employees support the communities that we serve."

New this year, the community is also invited to come by the 'Enbridge Cabin' to enjoy free treats on Saturday, February 9 while attending one of Winterlude's outdoor dance parties. Featuring musical performances, the event takes place from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. in the Marion Dewar Plaza at Ottawa City Hall, across from Confederation Park.

As well, the community is invited to enjoy a series of Enbridge Energy on Ice Skating Shows. These shows take place every Saturday and Sunday during Winterlude at the Marion Dewar Plaza.
