What to do this weekend – January 21-23

A family event at a museum, ice fishing, a visit to Jouvence – just some of our suggestions for activities to enjoy this weekend!

Take the kids to the museum

A ‘colourful’ exhibition (in both senses of the word!) is currently on display at Sherbrooke’s Museum of Nature and Science. Colorier, colorer, couleurer is an interactive event designed for all age groups and it’s based on the book Tirer ses ficelles by author Diane Longpré. Topics covered in this family-friendly event include identity, differences and self-affirmation and how they play a role in one’s own life – past and present. Truly an exercise in self-discovery! (Until January 30.)

Spend the day ice fishing with the family

Wrap up well and head for the ice fishing ‘village’ at Baie-des-Sables in Megantic. Who knows? This might be your lucky day….

Discover Jouvence – a magnificent outdoors playground!

This weekend, outdoor lovers will be able to enjoy the facilities at Jouvence, without having to book accommodation. (Normally an overnight stay is part of the deal.) Located within Mont-Orford National Park, Jouvence is offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy its many activities for half a day. Included in the entrance fee is a wide selection of attractions – cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, skating, an obstacle trail through the woods, kicksledding….. The list goes on. Reward your exertions with a mug of coffee or hot chocolate!

Possible time slots : 8:30am-12 noon or 1pm-4:30pm | Book your tickets online

Lace up your skates and go!

The freezing temperatures during the last couple of days have created the perfect conditions for ice skating. Check out the best rinks and outdoor spaces in the Townships where you can enjoy this popular winter activity.

Curl up with a good book

Perhaps you’re in need of a little cocooning ? Why not discover some of the region’s authors while keeping cozy indoors, sipping on a ‘cuppa’ from a Townships’ tea merchant?
