Dog Sledding

We are excited to welcome Controlled Chaos to MIP this month! Free dog sled rides will take place January 15-16 and January 22-23, from 1:00 – 5:00pm.

Dog sled rides will be 5 minutes long, and limited to two individuals (up to a maximum of 250lbs). Children under 10 years of age must be accompanied by a rider over 10 years of age.

Families can now submit an entry into a randomly drawn lottery for a chance to take part! Lottery entries will be accepted until Sunday January 9, 2022 at 5:00pm. One entry per family is permitted.

During your visit, don’t forget to stop by the WB Kids tent and learn about barrier-free participation to sport, recreation, social and cultural programs and activities in the Wood Buffalo region. Donations will be accepted at this event.

This contest is now closed.
