Pointe-du-moulin abuzz with summer activities
The Pointe-du-Moulin Historical Park in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot is offering a host of summertime activities for the entire family. And in addition to regular activities that include guided tours through the site’s historic windmill and miller’s house, exploring the interpretation centre, archery, or trips in a rabaska canoe where stories and legends from the area are included, visitors can also attend a few special summertime events.
On July 14, Pointe-du-Moulin will transport people to another era with horsedrawn carriage rides, costumed characters, old fashioned bread and bannock baked by the miller’s wife, a vintage and antique car exposition, hot dog sales and more.
The day will also feature free kayak and canoe rentals. In case of rain, the event will be held the following day. All activities will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Camping under stars
Another wonderful opportunity held each summer on the lush waterfront property is the chance to camp under the stars, taking place this year on Aug. 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. the following day. For a $30 campsite fee, campers will hear stories and legends as told by animators around a giant campfire. Later stargazer and professional telescope maker Normand Fullum will lead a stargazing workshop, while the evening will also include a late-night candlestick walk. Breakfast the next day will be included. There is a sixperson, two-tent maximum per site.
Parc historique de la Pointe-du-Moulin is located at 2500, boulevard Don-Quichotte in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. For reservations or information, call 514 453-5936, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
