Pincourt spreads picnic blanket this weekend
Summer full with 50th anniversary events
The town of Pincourt is 50 years-old. To celebrate, officials have filled the calendar with events scheduled to take place over the coming months.
But one, amulti-cultural day and community parade that was to have taken place this weekend has been scrapped in lieu of a picnic open to all. “It would be nice to know your neighbours better,” say organizers, who feel bonding between residents will improve safety for all. “Warmer ties reinforce a citizens’ feeling of belonging.”
With that in mind, all residents are invited to a community picnic this Saturday, June 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Olympique Park that will include childrens’ entertainment, music, games, obstacle courses, inflatable structures and face painting.
And the first 500 people to show up won’t even have to pack their own lunches, as the town will provide one. In case of rain, the picnic will be moved indoors to the OmniCentre.
More to come
Other anniversary celebrations scheduled during the coming months include: Pincourt’s annual Firemen’s Day parade and celebration on August 14. The parade will start at the Omni-Centre at 12:15 pm and end at Bellevue Park at 1:30 pm. The day will conclude with the town’s wellknown fireworks display.
And the overhaul of Bellevue Park and bay will be on display on August 21 during Pincourt Boating Day. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., residents will be able to take a turn at no charge in one of the town’s canoes, kayaks or rabaskas.
More events will include a Family Bicycle Outing on September 12, and a library reunion on September 22. The 50th anniversary will conclude next fall with a recap of the year’s events.
