Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

T he Parc de la Gorge de Coat­i­cook has re­ceived a Thea Award, an in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion, for the cre­ation of its Foresta Lu­mina pro­ject in the cat­e­gory “In­ter­ac­tive At­trac­tion of the Year – lim­ited bud­get”. An elite award, last year the win­ner of the same cat­e­gory was Wilder­ness Ex­plor­ers of Dis­ney’s An­i­mal King­dom.

Pre­sented by the Themed En­ter­tain­ment As­so­ci­a­tion (TEA) at its an­nual gala, the award will be given out in April in Ana­heim, Cal­i­for­nia. The Thea Awards Com­mit­tee an­nu­ally rec­om­mends a se­lec­tion of re­cip­i­ents af­ter an ex­haus­tive se­lec­tion and eval­u­a­tion process.

“We are thrilled! To be nom­i­nated was al­ready flat­ter­ing, but this in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion will give us wings and much vis­i­bil­ity,” com­mented Caro­line Sage, the park’s gen­eral man­ager. Foresta Lu­mina has at­tracted more than 225,000 vis­i­tors since its open­ing in 2014 and has had an eco­nomic im­pact on the en­tire re­gion.
