You already know about the giant rubber duck headed to the city for our nation’s 150th birthday, and now joining the larger-than-life roster is a massive 20,000-year-old iceberg!
In lieu of celebrations, Canada’s own Iceberg Vodka is sending one of Canada’s national wonders on a tour. The 20,000- year-old iceberg will travel all the way to Ontario from Newfoundland, making pit stops on an Ice-Bus in Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, Toronto and Kingston, before it lands in Ottawa for Canada 150.
Also on the Iceberg Tour will be Canadian personality and iceberg enthusiast, Shaun Proulx, who will serve as the host, meeting-and-greeting with Canadians along the way. And because icebergs are the purest source of water on the planet (thanks to formation pre-industrial pollution), Proulx will be helping visitors chip n’ sip off a piece of the iceberg! In addition, visitors will be asked why they think it’s cool to be Canadian, and the answers will be recorded on a Canadian flag which will stand erected on the floating iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean on Canada Day.
Here’s where you can find the iceberg:
Monday, June 26: Kitchener-Waterloo
Tuesday, June 27: Hamilton
Wednesday, June 28: Toronto
Thursday, June 29: Kingston
Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1: Ottawa
