More magic comes to Coat­i­cook

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

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.
