Pêche en herbe Programm

As part of this year’s Fishing Festival, children from 7 to 17 years old will have the opportunity to subscribe to the Pêche en herbe Programm sponsored by Canadien Tire. The Programm offers a 1 hour course to go through the theory behind fishing. Children will also be given a free fishing rod and a fishing permit valid until they’re 18 years old. Like each year, it will be the only day that fishing will be permitted in the historical area (between the old miller’s house and the windmill up to the water). Subscribe to the programm at info@pointedumoulin.com. Spots are limited so make sure to sign up soon!

Trade Exhibit : Wood Turner

For those who saw him in action last year, the Wood Turner is back! The work of a wood turner always succeed to attract crowds, by its impressive mecanism and the complexity of the tasks at hand. Come and learn this really special expertise that is going to be much and much rarer to see. The exhibit starts at 11:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. Regular fees applies to enter the Park.

Trade Exhibit : Wooden Clog

To sing Felix Leclerc’s song, Moi, mes souliers ont beaucoup voyagé… Shoes have come a long way since the arrival of the First Settlers. Like us, they needed to protect their feet and toes from heavy objects while they were working. Of course, they didn’t have steel-toed boots like we do but they had something quite similar : wooden clogs. On septembre 9th, learn how important they were for the security of our ancestor, and of course, learn how to make them. To wear them is completely up to you! The exhibit starts at 11:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. Regular fees applies to enter the Park.
