Contest Rules for Best Buy Retro Skate Party Contest

What new traditions are you starting for Family Day 

Opportunities to spend time with your loved ones can be few and far between. Why not start a new tradition for Family Day this year to look forward to every February? If you’re going to join us at the Bentway, ice skating could become a new tradition for your family. Or, if you live near mountains, you might like to go skiing or snowshoeing on Family Day to make the most of the Canadian winter days. If you’d rather spend the day indoors, playing a new board game every year might be a fun activity everyone would enjoy! Or, you and your loved ones could also enter one of our contests for a chance to win the latest and greatest tech!

However you choose to celebrate, we hope you have a great time with your family on February 20th. And if you live in Toronto, see you at the Bentway!

  1. A tradition every family should try is Karting. We used to go every Thanksgiving growing up and even into adulthood. It seems such a simple thing, but it really is a blast.

  2. And ideal family day would be for my family to all have breakfast together in the morning. After breakfast we would get dressed and go sledding. After we would come home and make hot chocolate and a snack. Later we would then start a fire in the backyard and roast hotdogs and of course s’mores for supper. Next, we would play some board games and guitar hero. A great family movie would cap off an awesome family day.

  3. An annual Family Day hike through the local woods, as well as some board game activities at home over hot chocolate afterward, would be so much fun! I’d love to make that a tradition.

  4. I just want to spend time with my family and BBQ in the winter for dinner! That would be a wonderful tradition. Everyone is so busy these days, any time spent together is a great time!

  5. I’d love to start a tradition with my family of going to see Broadway across Canada shows together or something! My kids are getting older and my 4 year old is getting more and more into theatre. 🙂

  6. I have started playing puzzles on family day with my family members, we can play a 500-piece puzzle or 1000-piece puzzle for the entire day, and of course, with snacks and drinks to keep the brain working.
