An all-new way to let loose in winter!!!
MONTREAL, Dec. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quays of the Old Port and the team
at Bougex will be pushing the envelope yet a little further this year by
inviting thrill-seekers to a 24-hour Winter Wonders event on Bonsecours Island
and the adjacent ice skating rink. A winter bar, Bougex happy hour, fun group
activities and crazy competitions on seven stages and a mobile stage, dancing,
winter-urban camping ... in short, reinventing the art of outdoor winter fun!
It all starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 14 and goes until 5 p.m. the next
day. And it's free!
For the third straight year, Bougex is offering a very special sleepover.
Experienced winter campers and neophytes are invited to try an unusual form of
recreation and join us for a memorable night! Winter camping pros will be on
hand to dispense advice on Friday evening. For information on what equipment
you need, see: www.bougex.com.
Quays Winter Bar
Bonsecours Island is home to an unusual winter oasis where one can sip on
a hot drink (Quelque Chose brand beer) or explosive cocktail served in a glass
made of ice, while feasting your eyes on breathtaking views of the Quays and
the cityscape in winter garb. The Quays Winter Bar, the trendiest of winter
venues, will be open Thursday through Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m. Free admission
