Winter Pleasures: it’s this Friday and Saturday!

We’ve been enthusiastically telling you about it since January: Plaisirs d’hiver is THE winter celebration to get together and enjoy some great outdoor activities. The weather’s playing tricks on us by not allowing us to skate, but that won’t stop us from dancing on Friday night and playing outside on Saturday! Guaranteed fun for young and old alike.

We’ve summarized the program below!

Friday, February 9: Disco Night at Goyette Hill Park

We had planned a “Disco Skating” evening, but the mild weather forced us to adapt: instead, it’s a “Disco Night” and we’ll be dancing outdoor in boots with just as much fun!

Come and dance from 7 p.m. on Friday, February 9, in Goyette-Hill Park: the evening will be hosted by a DJ playing disco hits until 9 p.m.!
Special lighting effects and artistic performances will make for a colorful evening.

Come and dance disco!

Free coffee and hot chocolate will be available on site.
New: beer sales on site (cash only)
