Beaconsfield residents will get into the Christmas spirit this weekend as the city hosts several festive public events. It is a stop on the Bo Holiday Market on Saturdays and the popular CP Holiday Train on Sundays.
A local community group, Les Amis du Village Beaurepaire, has found the ideal location for this year’s Beaux Holiday Market: a Christmas park.
According to Dominique Godin of Les Amis, the market has moved from the corner of Fieldfare Ave. and Beaconsfield Blvd. to Christmas Park. Because we can use the heated park chalet which provides more space and can host other activities.
Godin, who also serves as a city councilor for the region, said more than 40 merchants will offer their goods at the market, which will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 26.
“This time we also have an alcohol license and will be serving drinks and malt wines at Duke and Devine’s Pub. We will also be roasting marshmallows in the baseball outfield.”
The Saturday holiday market is the second big event of the year organized by the nonprofit Les Amis du Village Beaurepaire.
In May, under the leadership of President Brian Miller, Les Amis successfully hosted a neighborhood garage sale/porchfest event to raise money for the local NOVA.
Godin said the non-profit Les Amis due Beaurepaire group is looking for ways to improve and expand Beaurepaire Village’s commercial and social offerings. They solicit informal input from citizens at holiday markets.
“Brian Miller and I will set up some boards on the fence of the tennis courts at Christmas Park and pitch ideas about what Rezamis would like to see in town,” she said. We’re talking about branding the town. What do we want to be? What brings you to the village and what draws you here even more?”
There is also a photo booth with Santa. Photos are free, but we accept donations.
“Everything we get from photo donations goes to NOVA,” said Godin. “There are other charities…Montreal Children’s Hospital, Tweety Treat, Suitcases for Africa and I Am Hessima.”
Godin There will be a variety of vendors on the market this year, including wood carvers. “The Alexander van Humboldt German School in Baie Dürve will also come and make German Christmas ornaments,” she said.
