Citizens’ Day on August 19th at Parc de la Maison-Valois
The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion will host a get-together for residents on Sunday, August 19, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM to celebrate the annual Citizens’ Day (Fête du citoyen) at Parc de la Maison-Valois.
One of the new features this year is that the fall registration session, normally at the Centre Multisports, will move to the park for the event. In addition to the registration, organizations will provide demonstrations and try-outs of their various activities.
The Citizens’ Day program is varied and suited to all ages: acrobatics, beach area with DJ, volley pong and giant Jenga, water craft rentals, inflatable games, make-up, roving entertainers, cultural mediation and a mini-farm. Kids can also compete in an obstacle course versus their Jeunesse Vaudreuil-Dorion day camp counsellors.
All activities are free, except for food and drinks (street food truck on site). Residents are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles, as fill-up stations will be available.
A side event will take place at Parc Paul-Gérin-Lajoie at 1:00 PM with a display by Planches et recycle, a chair-building project using skateboards by Philippe Corriveau and kids who hang out at the skateboard park.
Note that if weather conditions prevent the activities, the event will be postponed until August 26th.
