Wondering what to do this weekend? We’ve got some suggestions!
Yippee! Most of the trails that were closed to hikers because of the hunting season are open again this weekend and next weekend, however, from November 6, they will once more be out of bounds. Take advantage of the ‘in between time’ to explore Mont Hereford, the Sentiers de l’Estrie hiking network or Mont Singer. Spectacular views guaranteed!
A novel way to explore this city is by geo-rallying – either by car, by bike or on foot! Download the app, which will reveal the caches around a choice of three themed circuits (and the city) and in the process, learn about the history and heritage of Val-des-Sources. A unique adventure for the whole family!
Until November 15 | Val-des-Sources | Free
The apples are picked and now it’s cider time! A brand new event – La Grande Presse – will let you take a peek behind the scenes to see how how cider is produced in Quebec. Visitors will be able to tour the cider-making facilities, chat to cider makers, see how the apple presses operate (and produce your own cider), attend workshops and sample the delicious apple drink. Four Eastern Townships cideries will be participating in this first edition of La Grande Presse.
October 22-24 | Check out the program and participating cider makers
The farmers’ markets are closing up shop for the season….This weekend however, you’ll still be able to stock up on fall vegetables at the Marché public in Sutton, the Marché de la Gare (Sherbrooke), the Marché public in Granby and the Mante du Carré in Danville. (The latter stays open year round.)
An evening of astronomy at the foot of the mountain in Mont Megantic National Park. A multimedia show (inside) and a session of stargazing (outside) will make you appreciate the wonders of the heavenly universe…
Saturday, October 23 and Saturday, October 30 (7:30pm-9pm) | Reservations essential
2 metres, 20 seconds, a face covering... You know the drill. This summer, we all need to do our part to make this vacation season both enjoyable and responsible.
(In fact, I can even stand apart.)
(Anyways in #touristmode, I'm in no hurry!)
(Ring ahead to avoid the crowd... it’s that simple!)
(I promise... this is no time to joke around.)
Together - For a safe vacation - Let’s be responsible.
