Holiday Train Coming To Beaconsfield

 Filed under: Family, Activity — webmaster @ Nov 24th, 2016

On Saturday November 26th, 2016 just after 8:00pm the CP Holiday Train will be making a stop at the Beaconsfield Train station.

If you have never experienced it this is a fun Christmas event for your children.

A Christmas themed train makes a short (approximately 30 minutes) stop at the train station with a musical show and visit from Santa.

The Holiday train is an annual event and the Beaconsfield train station is the only stop it makes on the West Island.

This year’s musical show will feature a performance by DALLAS SMITH.

Several local charities will be collecting food donations as well.

 Christmas 2015 Family Activity

 Filed under: Family, Activity — webmaster @ Nov 26th, 2015

Christmas is less than a month away! If you are looking for a way to kick-start the Christmas season a great family activity is to check out the Walk To Bethlehem out in Hudson.

This interactive theater piece takes you through Bethlehem just before Christ’s birth. The audience walks through various scenes filled with Roman soldiers, Shepherds, beggars and thieves as the Christmas story is told.

This free event (although donations are accepted) takes place in the evening on the weekend of November 27th and 28th as well as the following weekend December 4th and 5th.

Don’t forget to dress warmly since a good part of the walk is outside.

Location: Hudson Community Baptist Church, 3141 Cote St.Charles , St-Lazare Quebec
