Winter festivities in Saint-Eustache: we play outside!

A rich and varied program is offered to Eustachians in order to fully enjoy the joys of winter. Outside is the new motto of the city and the mayor is particularly enthused about it!

The Winter Festivities program has been designed to encourage Eustachians to play outside and to take advantage of the many municipal parks that we have in Saint-Eustache. In this time of sanitary restrictions, nothing better than a good breath of fresh air to keep morale up! », declared Mayor Pierre Charron when the program was announced.

Nature Park: challenges for young and old
