MONTREAL, Feb. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - The site of La fête des Neiges de Montréal, in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau's winter wonderland, opens at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning, welcoming outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to come and enjoy the many free shows and activities at this popular festivity. This is the third and final weekend of the event celebrating winter in Montreal.
"The combination of the recent stretch of nice weather and the favourable forecast for this coming weekend has enabled event organizers to get the site well prepared for this final weekend of activities and ensure a full program for the enjoyment of everyone heading to La fête des Neiges tomorrow and Sunday," said Société du parc Jean-Drapeau spokesperson Nathalie Lessard.
Included among the highlights of the weekend is the "Dance for the Climate" activity, on Saturday, at 2 p.m. This initiative by the province's weather forecasters is an invitation for the entire population to come out to Parc Jean-Drapeau and dance on behalf of the planet - the choreography is easy to learn, and it can be found on the Parc's website at www.parcjeandrapeau.com.
Other not-to-be-missed activities awaiting children is the show of the dog Moppi. Children can also get a ticket for the drawing of a VIP invitation to meet the characters Dora and Diego. Along with this, professional Sylvain Leclerc will be giving a barrel-jumping demonstration at the rink, and the musical group Les Flowkonz will be performing on the main stage.
People can also enjoy the many winter activities such as :
- The snow-tubing slide and the Superglisse
- The skaters' path along the river
- L'Allée carnavalesque, the carnival-like midway and its games of skill
- Slide for a donation to the Juvenile Arthritis Society
- The Olympiades with the Virgin radio station crew
Also, on site you can rent skates, toboggans and snow scooters. Make it a date to be there - it's so easy to get to the site by subway, to the Jean-Drapeau station!
