/R E P E A T/ - 2008 Igloofest: Wild Winter Piknic fun on the Quays of the Old Port of Montréal!

    MONTREAL, Jan. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - What better way to shed some of that
weight you gained over the holidays than by dancing the night away, with your
warm woolies on, of course! Igloofest is back for a second year, with not two
but four fabulous evenings of dancing. Co-produced once again with the Quays
of the Old Port of Montréal, Igloofest will be bringing some great winter fun
to the Jacques Cartier Quay on January 18, 19, 25 and 26, from 6 p.m. to
midnight. Admission is $5 before 8 p.m., and $10 after 8 p.m.
    We're committed to bringing you the best in musical entertainment, with a
frosty flair, of course. This year's very special lineup:

    Friday, January 18:   Josh Wink (USA), Misstress Barbara (CA), Arsen (CA)

    Saturday, January 19: MUTEK@Igloofest: Abe Duque (USA), Derek

    And just to prove that bad taste is sometimes the best taste, we're
inviting you to dress up in your tackiest, wackiest duds - because Igloofest
will once again be handing out prizes in its annual one-piece snowsuit contest
at the TELUS photo studio. Prizes include a trip to the TELUS Spin at Mont
Tremblant and a pair of lift tickets for Mont Tremblant. Check out
www.telus.com/igloo for complete contest details.
    There will be a full bar on site, with beer, mulled wine, caribou and
fortified coffee to keep everyone warm. And besides the Igloo Village,
visitors can discover all the charms and other activities on the Quays of the
Old Port of Montréal, including the skating rink, ice sculptures, the
IMAX(R)TELUS theatre and the Montréal Science Centre.
