Ste. Anne de Bellevue boosting its summer activities
Family Thursdays will offer various activities and theme-related events for kids of all ages
Ste. Anne de Bellevue is kicking off its summer season with a new cruise and several family-friendly activities throughout the whole season.
The cruise will take passengers across Lac St. Louis for a tour of the shores of Ile-Perrot and Ile Dowker. The hour-long ride will offer views of Mount-Royal, St. Joseph’s Oratory and finish off with a peak at Old St. Anne. There will be five cruise departures per day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays until September 1. Adult tickets cost $20, $5 for children aged 4-12 and free for children under the age of 3. The family rate offers free admission for a second child. You can buy tickets or find out more information at navark.ca/cruise.
If you’d rather stay on land, there will still be plenty for you and the family to do. Free shuttle buses will take visitors to the Ecomuseum Zoo, the Morgan Arboretum or to the Montreal Aviation Museum, all of which will feature kid-friendly exhibits.
Thursdays in Ste. Anne de Bellevue have been deemed Family Thursdays and will offer several activities that take place by the Canal and its surrounding locations. On July 6, the Ste. Anne pool will have animators, games and inflatables in the water. On July 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Parc Aumais will host the Family Olympics, in which families are invited to compete in challenges inspired by the “one-minute” program. One July 27, a Family Photo Rally will take over Parc Grodin. Families will be asked to bring their cameras or smartphones to participate in a unique competition that encourages smiling.
You can also catch two outdoor movies at Parc Aumais; Baby Boss will be shown in French on July 13 at 9 p.m. and Monster Trucks will be shown in English on Aug. 3 at 9 p.m. (The screenings will be moved to Chalet Peter-Williamson in the event of rain).
The Ste. Anne market will host Family Day on July 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a Family Fiesta on Aug. 17 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Parc Harpel. There will be inflatables, game kiosks, a reading tent and a family BBQ. As well, foodies may enjoy the Garlic Festival on Aug. 26, Tomato Day on Sept. 9 and Ecology Day on Sept. 16.
