Parc Jean-Drapeau wants you to stay cool for the start of Quebec’s construction holidays as they host their Family Weekend on July 21 and 22. The island will host a variety of water-based activities highlighted by their first-ever ‘Floating Cinema.’

‘Floating Cinema’ is exactly what it sounds like: Parc Jean-Dapeau’s Aquatic Complex will screen Ricardo Trogi’s first two family comedy-films, 1981 and 1987 before the Quebec director wraps up his trilogy with the July 27 release of 1991.

The films will be projected in succession on a giant screen on Saturday at 5 pm. Guests are asked to bring their own buoys, floaties and pool chairs.

Besides the floating movies, the pool will also boast a giant, plastic, floating ball – open to everyone.

The Aquatic Complex will also host a diving, bombing and belly-flop competition with prizes to be won for each category while a DJ spins cool summer beats.

Sunday will feature high dive performances by champion, Lysanne Richard.

Adjacent to the complex, Jean-Doré Beach will also get in on some summertime action. They’ll host a Bubble Party with inflatable games covered in soap bubbles and foam. Granby Zoo will be on sand at the beach hosting a discovery workshop.



For the weekend, access to both Jean-Doré Beach and the Aquatic Complex will be free for kids under 13-years-old. Purchase of a ticket for either the Aquatic Complex or Jean-Doré Beach will allow access to both sites.

Needless to say, a literally cool way to kick off the construction holidays.
