Fête des neiges de Montréal 2018 - Boule de neige and his sidekicks head off on an adventure


MONTRÉAL, Dec. 15, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - To mark its 35th anniversary and thank the public for faithfully supporting the event every year, the Fête des neiges crew has decided to leave the confines of Parc Jean-Drapeau to go play outdoors and meet the families of the Greater Montréal area.

Boule de neige and his sidekicks' adventure begins this weekend when they will be making an appearance at four of the largest Christmas markets to celebrate the arrival of winter and the holiday season. With their flamboyant costumes and natural charm, the characters that set the Fête des neiges apart from all of the other neighbourhood winter events, will get people of all ages swept up in the magic of winter.

Loads of fun games and photo-taking sessions are part of this outdoor tour, which promises to put a sparkle in the eyes of all the tiny tots in attendance.

Come and meet these playful characters and enjoy a magical moment!
