MONTRÉAL, Aug. 4, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Get ready for the All Aboard, Pirates! event that is taking place at Parc Jean-Drapeau's Jean-Doré Beach this Sunday, August 7.

Great news: admission to the site is free for all children that come wearing a pirate-themed costume!

Pirate activities all day long
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., four pirates are offering a series of fun and rousing activities, including Les Petits Pieds Marins, a special training session to become a mini-sailor. Then, at 3 p.m, Paradoxe le Pirate takes to the stage and relates his adventures with the help of circus tricks, magic performances, and balancing and juggling acts. His captivating tales will enable prospective pirates to participate in the show, injecting even more life into the stories. Tiny tots (aged 2 to 6) can take part in the Mélou show from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., where they can learn how to manage their emotions through movement. Throughout the day, the more energetic youngsters will undoubtedly enjoy having fun in the huge inflatable play structure in the form of a pirate ship, between a couple of swims.

A beach that's mere minutes from the downtown area
A refreshing oasis situated just five minutes from downtown Montréal, Jean-Doré Beach has a golden, sandy beach surface and outstanding quality water in which to swim. It's the ideal place to lounge in the sun or take part in boating activities, beach volleyball or open-water swimming, as a family or with friends!
