As the holidays approach and the new Christmas market in Vieux-Saint-Eustache will be presented in the gardens of the Globensky manor, Patrimoine culturel Vieux-Saint-Eustache is presenting special activities for the whole family that will take place during the weekend of December 10 to 12 at the Espace muséal of the Globensky manor (235, rue Saint-Eustache).
This Friday, December 10, residents can discover the origins of the Christmas party thanks to the talent of Pierre, the miller, as a storyteller, and attend the lighting of the Christmas tree in the Museum Space of the Globensky Manor. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served on site. Guaranteed wonder! Lasting thirty minutes, three performances per day will be offered, at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
“Under the theme” Christmas in the Victorian era “, young and old are invited to participate in various creative workshops on Saturdays and Sundays. Decorating Christmas cookies, making beeswax candles, making a candlestick, creating Christmas cards, making Christmas firecrackers and making amber apple are the six workshops that will be offered by animators and members of the Cercle de Fermières Saint-Eustache,” announced Mr. Michel Goyer, president of Patrimoine culturel Vieux-Saint-Eustache.
It will also be the ideal time to visit the new temporary exhibition One hundred years without losing the thread: Le Cercle de Fermières de Saint-Eustache which recounts 100 years of history of the association. In fact, the Globensky Manor Museum Space has adjusted its opening hours during Christmas market weekends. It will be open Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Here is an excellent program of the Espace muséal, which ties in nicely with the ambient magic of the brand-new Christmas market, just a stone’s throw away. The Advent period promises to be magical in Vieux-Saint-Eustache. We hope to see you there! », said the mayor of Saint-Eustache, Mr. Pierre Charron.
