Sunday October 29th The Wizards Village
Esplanade de la Place des Arts will be transformed into a wizards village, where a battalion of wizards-in-the-making can take part in an array of activities. Magic wand-making, a spooky carrousel, face painting, a pumpkin museum, an enchanted forest and more awaits you.
Children will receive a passport that gives them access to the apprentice wizard workshops. Once they have completed all the activities and their passports have been stamped, these newly-trained sorcerers will be ready to face a creature (Trouble-Fete) and hopefully put it back to sleep once again.
At 3:00 pm The Great Wizardry Parade will begin, with floats and wizards making their way toward the Trouble-Fête at the Place des Festivals. To thank the children for their precious help on this important mission, they will be treated to a show by Les Petites Tounes.
Adults and kids alike, come show off your best Halloween costumes!
