Rediscover the pleasures of winter through
a family-friendly winter multimedia activity. Indulge your inner
child with ball games and help the Étincelles (French for
"sparks") gang in their quest to light up the city of Sherbrooke! Warm
up in a festive atmosphere and let the magic of light guide you!
This activity created by Moment Factory is free and will take place
at the Jacques-Cartier Park in Sherbrooke from December 10, 2021 to
January 9, 2022.
All year long, Flammèche and a band of
friends, the Étincelles, wait impatiently for the holiday
season to arrive so they can do what they love most in the world:
light up their town and turn it into a place of celebration! Every
night, as soon as it gets dark, Flammèche flies out of the house,
along with little brother Tison, to meet up with their friends
Brilliance, Bougie, Ombrage and Pénombre. Together they walk the
quiet streets of the city, stardust in their pockets, and wake up
all those who thought they could spend another quiet night.
Étincelles also features a
large lighted pathway running all the way to the Lac des Nations
that sets the stage of this immersive show. There will also be fun
interactive games to get you moving! Toward the end of your visit,
stop by a spacious and welcoming relaxation zone decorated with
fire pits and fir trees. Cabins will also be open to visitors, and
hot beverages and meals will be served there.
Do you want to celebrate the holidays
just like in the old days? Playing outside, drinking hot
chocolate, admiring scintillating decorations and creating
unforgettable memories? This is the kind of magic you can look
forward to at Lights
on Sherbrooke. Discover all of the fun winter activities you
can enjoy. In addition to Étincelles, there
will be the Elf Hunt in CentrÔville, the Scintillating Trail that
takes you to see Sherbrooke’s most beautiful outdoor Christmas
decorations, the Christmas market at the Marché de la Gare de
Sherbrooke, the charming wintertime public squares and the
illuminated skating rink at Domaine-Howard. Whether you visit
Sherbrooke with family, friends or your sweetheart, this is
definitely a must-see holiday destination!
