More magic comes to Coaticook
The town of Coaticook has been named a “Coeur villageois” with a special theme “Ici, on étire le temps” by Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est. To earn the accreditation, the town had to plan a “memorable and enchanted” day for visitors.
During their “journee memorable”, visitors and tourists will be led to different tours that will highlight heritage architecture, heritage cemeteries and the town’s industrial heritage. Visitors will also discover La Voie des pionniers, the Musee Beaulne, the Pavillon des arts et de la culture, the Petite Maison des artistes, the Laiterie de Coaticook, the Microbrasserie de Coaticook and more. Cycling tourists can ride from the north of town down to the south of Coaticook on the town’s lovely bike path which follows the river.
Visitors are also being invited to try a little magic by getting a fairy wing from the town’s tourist office and heading to the suspended bridge over the Gorge or on the bridge downtown that crosses the Pratt Creek. A Coaticook legend says that fairies exist and, at those special sites, wishes will come true if you throw a fairy wing into the water. They can make their special wishes during a daytime tour or at dusk while taking the Foresta Lumina tour.
