A FREE, FAMILY FOCUSED WINTER EVENT
The Flying Canoe Adventure/L'aventure du canoë volant is a unique outdoor winter event. We invite you to come and discover La Chasse-galerie (The Flying Canoe), a combination of a French-Canadian and First-Nations legend told by various lost canoeists along a lit trail in the Mill Creek Ravine. A sleigh ride will take event goers from the ravine to The City of Light / La Cité en Lumières (La Cité Francophone, 8627 rue Marie-Anne-Gaboury (91st)) where there will be live music, hot chocolate, a snow slide and children's activities. A fun time for all!
The Grand Rapids of Mill Creek ravine
Upon entering the Mill Creek ravine’s major access points, you will be greeted by a group of lost voyageurs wandering aimlessly in their canoes. They will give you an indication of the upcoming journey and provide you with some warning of what might be waiting for you ahead. “Gallery” the hunter himself as well as the lost voyageurs will enchant the evening forest.
The lost voyageurs will then lead you towards the Elders who will be waiting for you at the base camp. The base camp will be comprised of teepees hosting a performance stage and warming huts. This is where the many different variations of the story will come together. You then continue your journey upward to the City of Light and there you discover the true story of the lost voyageurs.
