Rediscover the pleasures of winter through Étincelles, 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.

The story of Étincelles

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.
