Big weekend in Coaticook
Coaticook is hosting a big, free event this Saturday, hoping people will come from all over the region to help them celebrate their 150th anniversary. The ‘’Grande fête du 150ème anniversaire de Coaticook’’ will begin at noon in the municipal parking lot at the center of town where there will be inflatable games for young ones and a Tyrolian Ripride to thrill the older kids. Clowns, jugglers and face painters will also be around to amuse everyone.
The special guests who will be performing with the Porn Flakes in the evening at the site have been announced. Joining the Porn Flakes, who are known for hosting lively and diverse shows, on stage will be Marc Dupré, Rémi Chassé, Valérie Lahaie, Lulu Hugues, Fred Lebel, Breen Leboeuf and Joël Denis. TeaBiscuit will perform the early show.
To kick things off on Friday, the silent movie classic The General, starring Buster Keaton, will be shown under the stars in Parc Chartier, beginning at 9:00 pm. This action comedy, made in 1926, is often regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time!
