MMM: Fetes Des Neiges
Mostly Montreal Monday
Ain’t no party like a winter party because a winter party feels MANDATORY, when you live in Montreal. (Forgive me Liz Lemon.)
We went to Fêtes des Neiges yesterday because it was a glorious winter day – we almost reached zero degrees! – and it seemed wise to spend it outside. This was the perfect family outing in Parc Jean-Drapeau with ice slides, performers, tubing, skating, ice sculptures and a life-sized foosball game where kids were strapped in where the peg-legged players would be. Fun!
Just like the Holiday Parade, I was amazed by the commitment of the performers here. The costumes and make-up were flawless and the players themselves were approachable, spirited and even bi-lingual. They were true ambassadors for the event.
We ate salted pretzels, drank hot chocolate and soaked it all in making the easy decision to attend both days next year.
Thanks Montreal. Party on!
