A snow celebration worthy of Old Man Winter/Photos by Benoit Champagne

The first weekend pf February, the Fête des neiges blew over Lorraine. In the middle of a chilly Saturday, it allowed families to rediscover the pleasure of playing outside during this event, which this year took place under the theme of the Olympic Games. Despite a reduced reception capacity, due to the pandemic restrictions, people were there, as was the wonderful winter spirit. It was a great satisfaction for everyone to find Lorraine Park lively during this winter celebration.

Among the activities that delighted participants were the snow sculpture workshop, the unmissable inflatable games and the skill contest for hockey fans. Congratulations to the young hockey winners, who received a $100 gift card offered by the Hockey Experts store at Place Rosemère: Benjamin Bossé, Levi Correia, Mathieu Généreux, Ludovic Geraldo, Jérémie Herbert and Xavier Herbert. Throughout the day, various games and traveling entertainment brightened up the site. The exhibition of snowmen made by Lorraine families over the past few weeks, as part of the “Mon bonhomme et moi!” competition was noteworthy. Adèle Brouillette, voted by visitors during the Festival, won the grand prize: a gift set valued at $50 including a thermos mug, sweets and a gift card redeemable at Sports Experts.

Present on the site with his colleagues from the municipal council, Mayor Jean Comtois said he was delighted with the celebration: “Really, what a pleasure to meet the happy faces of young and old during this beautiful winter day! The citizens had fun, they took advantage of it, and I can tell you that for all the members of Council, it was a great pleasure to meet up with them. Hats off to the recreation and culture team for this great organization and thank you to all the visitors, volunteers, organizations, partners and sponsors,” said the mayor of Lorraine.
