La Ville de Brownsburg-Chatham souhaite vous informer des activités qui se tiendront les 8 et 15 décembre 2018.

 

Tout d’abord, samedi le 8 décembre sera l’occasion pour les citoyens d’apporter leurs dons et denrées pour la Guignolée qui aura lieu de 9 h à 16 h dans différents endroits soit à l’intersection des rues Principale et des Érables et au sous-sol de l’église Saint-Louis-de-France.

 

Le samedi suivant, soit le 15 décembre, aura lieu La Grande Fête de Noël. Celle-ci débutera à 13 h avec la parade de Noël de l’intersection des rues St-Patrick et des Érables jusqu’au parc des Vétérans où la fête se poursuivra jusqu’à 15 h. Des juges détermineront les gagnants des chars allégoriques et remettront un prix de 300 $ pour la première place et de 100 $ pour la deuxième place. Les enfants auront la chance de faire leur demandes spéciales au Père Noël et immortaliser ce moment avec le photobooth, faire des tours de poney, de s’amuser dans une structure gonflable et se réchauffer avec un bon jus chaud autour du feu.

 

La Ville de Brownsburg-Chatham souhaite remercier la Fondation OriCare d’Orica Canada et la paroisse Sainte-Trinité pour leur collaboration dans la tenue de ces événements.

 

Nous invitons les familles à profiter de ces activités en grand nombre.
