Although summer might be over, the city of festivals is not done partying just yet. POP Montreal (an international music festival) has a kid-focused segment called Kids POP that was created in 2008 to offer free and accessible activities to young families at the festival.
On Sept. 24 and 25, Kids POP will offer tons of activities that will challenge their imaginations and expand their creative minds. There are workshops, activities and lessons, which provide families with something original, fun and educational. One of the activities include a screen-printing workshop at La Bourgeoise Serigraphe on Sept. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Participants begin with a basic introduction to the technique of screen-making, then print their own T-shirts and tote bags. This workshop is free for kids 8 years and up. Registration is required.
Kids POP Rocks is where kids get their chance to rock out. Enjoy live music, karaoke from Urockaoke, and Eastern European dancing tunes by Montreal’s Balkan Kafana. You can also help build an imaginary city with local artists and Skinjackids will be designing temporary tattoos for the children. The event takes place on Sept. 24 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Rialto Hall.
Kids POP Crawl is back this year. Spend an afternoon of fun and adventure in the Mile End district. Pick up your map at Rialto Hall and follow it to a dozen indoor and outdoor activities at different sites around the neighbourhood. All the venues are within walking distance from each other and each activity lasts about 15 minutes. It takes place on Sept. 25 from noon to 4 p.m.
