This Weekend in the West Island


By Daniele Iannarone

January 26 – 27, 2019

While it’s been a very cold and snowy week in Montreal, there is no shortage of activities available this weekend in the West Island for those who want to seek refuge from the cold – or those who want to embrace winter in all its glory.


Movie Night!

This Friday night, January 25th, at 7:00 PM, the City of Beaconsfield will be hosting its monthly “Friday Family Films” night.  This time around, they’ll be showing one of our favourite movies: The Incredibles!  The movie will be screened in English, with French subtitles.  Of course, this is a free event and there will even be some popcorn for everyone!

All are invited to this event, hosted at the Beaconsfield Library, and sponsored by the Friends of the Beaconsfield Library Organization.  Find out more about this event here on the City of Beaconsfield website.


Bad Art Afternoon

Do you love making a mess?  Want to get your hands dirty?  Want to paint some abstract art?  The City of Beaconsfield is offering a ‘Bad Art Afternoon’ this upcoming Saturday, January 26th, at 2:00 PM.  This bilingual event is geared toward teens aged 10-17 and encourages making terrible art.  The worst, the better!  There will be awards for… not the best works, but the worst ones!

There will even be delicious snacks served! This fun artistic event is being planned by the organization ‘Teen Voices,’ and will be held at the Beaconsfield Library as well.  Find out more about the event here on the City of Beaconsfield website.


A Fun Night Hike 

While many might want to seek shelter indoors this weekend, the City of Rigaud is encouraging the community to embrace the cold and the snow.  The city is organizing a torchlight hike from the Sucrerie de la Montagne and invites participants to come with their snowshoes, cross-country skies or fatbike for “a unique and surprising activity in an enchanting setting.”  To finish off the evening, gather around the campfire and indulge in a warm drink and listen to some fairy tales and legends (in French).

The event will be held this upcoming Saturday, January 26th, from 7:00-10:00 PM.  Don’t forget to dress warmly and pack some headlamps if you have any.  Find out more about the event on the City of Rigaud’s website (in French).

Have a great weekend!
