Tomorrow, there’s a full program of activities for all ages from 2 p.m. till midnight, including shows, workshops, volleyball, street hockey, capoeira and a movie screening. The theme is health and well-being.
Here’s what’s on for kids:
2 to 3 p.m.: Puppet show
2 to 6 p.m.: Face-painting and games, alleyway art gallery, creative workshops by Montreal Children’s Library
4 to 6 p.m.: Puppet-making workshop

If you can’t make it to tomorrow’s street party, put the next two on your schedule.
Each Neighbourhood on the Move gathering has a different theme and varied activities. The theme on July 24 is Art and Culture (activities include a bubble-making and paint-making workshop), and the theme for July 31 is Nutrition (activities include a jewelry-making workshop and treasure hunt).
In case of rain, the puppet show and some workshops will be held indoors or under tents.
There are bathrooms available on the site, plus sunscreen, water and iced coffee.
