A Canada Day for the whole family

The Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, invites all citizens to take part at the Canada Day celebrations at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park and in the Pointe-Claire Village, starting at 2 pm on Monday, July 1st.

“This day is a unique moment to celebrate with family, friends and neighbors and to participate in many activities for all ages,” said Mayor Belvedere.

A host of activities are planned throughout the day and the event will be closed by the traditional fireworks. At the end of the afternoon, citizens are invited to come and talk with the Mayor, Councillors and members of the Youth Advisory Board at the tent located next to Édouard-Paiment Park.

Once again this year, artists and roaming entertainers will brighten the streets of the Village. Music, magic, make-up, stilts, and tap dancing are just some of the many activities that will be available as of 4:30 pm.

Among other activities, the Stewart Hall Art Gallery will be offering a LUMINA art creative workshop on the theme “When the sun meets color”, in which participants will be invited to create cellophane paper works, in the method of stained glass. Also, a library tent at Édouard-Paiment Park will invite young and old to enjoy a reading break.

Finally, food kiosks and a water station will be provided for participants. Bring your bottle and be one of the first 100 people to fill it for a chance to win a Pointe-Claire gift basket!

We invite you to travel by active or shared transportation to get to the festivities. Bike racks will be provided in large numbers. In case of rain, the event will be postponed to Tuesday, July 2nd.
