MONTRÉAL, Aug. 24, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Parc Jean-Drapeau invites you to come enjoy the last days of summer at the Beach! On Sunday, August 27, the Western spirit will storm the Jean-Doré Beach for a day of festivities combining dance, fun-filled activities, swimming and country music.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., kids and grown-ups will have fun playing in inflatable game structures, trying to tame the mechanical bull or learning the line dancing basics! Our partners Rythme FM and Parks Canada will be on-site to entertain the crowd with animation, a sand castles competition and an introduction to canoe and kayak activity. The country singer and former La Voix cast member, Mathieu Langevin, will also be there to do two performances. On this special day, the admission to the Beach will be free for children aged 13 and under.
This event will mark the end of the regular summer season at Jean-Doré Beach. After this date, the Beach will only reopen on September 2, 3 and 4 for a final weekend of activities.
Events not to be missed
The end of summer does not mean slowing down at Parc Jean-Drapeau. On the contrary, the Parc will host many events for all tastes in the upcoming weeks.
Music lovers will be pleased with the programming of Piknic Électronik, which continues every Sunday until September 24. The more athletic ones, motivated by a good cause or the will to surpass themselves, will be able to participate or to attend events like the fun-filled 5 km Color Run, the Montreal Esprit Triathlon, the 24hrs Inline Montreal, the Dragon Boat Québec Cup, the Montreal Rock 'N' Roll Oasis Marathon, the Championnat régional de cross-country scolaire and the Light The Night Walk.
