Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Storytelling, aerial games, a mountain walk with your dog, cider sampling and foot races combined with thirst-quenching beer from a local microbrewery – just some of the fun activities that await you this weekend!
This weekend, the 27th edition of Les jours sont contés (« Storytelling Days ») will be taking place at the Maison des arts de la parole in Sherbrooke. The lineup includes several storytelling sessions and a special presentation of the One Thousand and One Nights, which does indeed last throughout the night of October 25/26!
Until October 27 │ See the full program.
If you haven’t tried the aerial games at Bromont’s Divertigo, now is your chance to do so, prior to the park closing for the winter. This is the last weekend of the season when you can whizz along zip lines, tackle the climbing walls and experience the free fall simulator, the mega swing or the climbing pole game – heart-stopping thrills for young and old!
This Saturday, the Cidrerie Milton (a cidery) is hosting a day themed around the product that it makes onsite. Attend workshops on how craft cider is produced, stock up on apple juice, enjoy ciders on tap and take a tour of the premises. While you’re there, why not pick your own apples and take a bag home? This will be the final weekend you can do so, until next year…
Saturday, October 26 (9:30am-6pm) │ Cidrerie Milton in Sainte-Cécile-de-Milton
Are you up for a challenge? In that case, the Microbreweries’ Half-Marathon in Bromont might well be for you! The races are divided into different lengths – 5, 10 and 21 kilometres – and there’s an easy, 1-km race designed for children. An incentive for finishing as quickly as you can is the post-race party with beer tastings from local microbreweries and regional produce.
Sunday, October 27│ Races start and finish at Bromont, montagne d’expériences
One weekend in every month, the Mont Ham Regional Park allows dog owners to use the trails and to stay at the park’s accommodations. This weekend happens to be the one for the month of October! Bring your pooch and walk to the summit where you can (both!) admire the view.
